The winner’s Cup race “Tour de France” kidnapped.
British racer Geraint Thomas lent his trophy produced this year, the company-sponsor. The award was set on Veloso in Birmingham — along with two prizes: Thomas and his teammates have won this season all three races of the Grand Tour.
After the exhibition, according to organizers, Cup Thomas left unattended “just for a moment,” and he immediately disappeared.
The cyclist was asked to return the trophy in his words, for thieves it is of little value: it is technically a medium size crystal vase, though handmade.
