Romain Bardet and Dan Martin took a computer cycle and a potentiometer from their bicycles in Montjuïc


The last stage of the Volta in the Barcelona circuit of Montjuïc registered a massive fall. Bicycles fallen, some twisted, and several runners lying on the asphalt. Three days after the end of the race, won by the Colombian Miguel Angel Lopez, two of the runners who were in that multiple fall report the theft they were subjected to during those moments of confusion. The Irishman Dan Martin, of Team Team Emirates, asks through Twitter with a sense of humor, that the person who stole his computer cycle sends the training file to his doctor and to the manufacturer of the training device, as it must be updated. .


The thief or the thieves also took advantage of the moments of confusion to take the potentiometer of the bicycle of the Romain Bardet, of the Ag2r team. Bardet, like Martin, also denounces the theft through Twitter.


The fall occurred when there were about 40 kilometers left by the end of the stage, at the Montjuïc circuit. At that time, Dan Martin was fifth overall and Romain Bartet eighth. The Catalan cyclist Marc Soler was also involved, and one of the most harmed was the Basque from the Basque Country, Garikoitz Bravo, who had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital.
