Above: Christoph Sauser’s 2008 World Championship-winning S-Works Epic was one of the 18 bikes stolen in the daylight burglary last Sunday. The total value of the bikes was estimated at $160,000 in the official police report.
The thieves who burglarized the Specialized headquarters on Sunday, Dec. 13th, did so by breaking through a window in the front of the building, Specialized’s Kelly Henningsen told MBA. She revealed that the building’s security-camera footage showed two men wearing COVID-19 face masks entering the building and committing the burglary. While the masks concealed most of their faces, the police were able to grab still images of the men from the videos that could be useful in identifying and prosecuting the thieves.
Below is the Specialized press release on the burglary that was released on Thursday:
Jaroslav Kulhavy’s gold-medal-winning bike from the 2012 Olympics was one of the bikes stolen.
Fabian Cancellara’s yellow S-Works Tarmac road bike was made to match his leader’s jersey in the Tour de France. It’s gone now.
