Race Winning Bike Stolen

Posted by chdot on October 23, 2006
Film scoring musician, Chris Hall, has had his prized machine stolen less than a week after success in a brand new race.

Bike and rider won the Hardtail category in the TwentyFourSeven Downtown Street Race at Bridgnorth in Shopshire on Sunday. Days later it was stolen from outside the Alien Rock climbing wall in Leith, when the thief cut the lock.

As Chris says “Keep your eyes peeled, I understand it’s what happens in life, but we all know how these things hurt…”

There is now a Flickr group where you can post a photo and info before it gets stolen and another IF it goes missing – details.
