    another sad day in the bicycle industry. Working at Haro for 10 years we know all to well the feeling that FOX and their crew must have. We had bikes stolen at Interbike (yes they were locked up) even with security there, had bikes stolen from our truck and trailer and a few Penske trucks a year or two later behind our office....just makes you sick to your stomach!
    Hang em by their balls eh?!!!

    I just saw Transformers 3 and that got me thinking, maybe its a Transformer and its gone back to Cybertron? But seriously that is a bold move, I hope it is returned soon. Good to read Fox can still provide (some) service to their riders.

    Good lord! Take a big set of bollocks to steal something like that! Sadly anyone stealing something like that is a pro, and it's probably chopped up by now already. I hope they find it though, F*#@ing dick heads.

    here's a bit more info from mark at fox:

    Sadly it is true. Tuesday morning between the hours of 2:00am and 6:00am while Mike Vanlienden was staying in a local Hotel outside of Quebec someone drove off with our entire truck and race trailer. The Trek mechanic actually saw it going down the highway towards the Montreal around 4:00am. We are absolutely gutted about it as it was stocked with our prototypes, Titanium spring inventory and everything we needed to service our teams and riders for the upcoming important North American events. In addition we were transporting the Atherton's North American pit setup. Luckily they had their bikes with them. We prepare very early for the race season and thanks to preseason testing, servicing/rebuilding our athletes product every race and supplying adequate spare suspension, we will get through it. This is our most important year to date as we are currently leading the mens and womens DH championship along with the mens 4x championship, and need to make sure we can service these top riders at the highest level.

    A few years back when the F1 race was there at the same time as MSA, there were all kinds of team trailers and trucks getting stolen. I think Canondale and some others were victims of it in the recent past. What I heard was that people were jacking the whole things and putting them on container ships for far away lands to be chopped.

    That's ridiculous that someone would/could steal something that big. I wish them the very best in getting everything back and fast!

    Sounds like Montreal is known for car theft... Let's hope it's not already through the chop shop and in a thousand indistinguishable pieces.
