Bike re­turned to par­a­lympic cy­clist

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

A Que­bec par­a­lympic cy­clist whose two racing bi­cy­cles were stolen just weeks be­fore the Rio Games has one of them back in her pos­ses­sion.

"It needs a bit of love but it (the dam­age) is su­per­fi­cial," Marie-Eve Croteau told a news con­fer­ence. "I am re­ally happy.”

Croteau, 37, said she thought her trip to Rio was in doubt af­ter she discovered the theft Fri­day.

The bike that was found is for road racing, while the one still miss­ing is for time tri­als. Nei­ther po­lice nor Croteau gave any de­tails about how the bike was tracked down.

Sur­veil­lance footage Croteau posted online showed two men en­ter­ing the un­der­ground garage of her condo build­ing and leav­ing with the bi­cy­cles mo­ments later.
