Just days before the start of the second downhill World Cup, Aaron Gwin’s race bike has been stolen.
The Intense Factory Racing team van and trailer were parked outside a hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland overnight while the team travelled to Fort William for the World Cup. The van was broken into and Gwin’s size Large Intense M29 was stolen. Intense Factory Racing’s trailer was also tampered with, but nothing was removed.
Gwin and his team both posted to Instagram asking fans to keep an eye out for the race bike.
Gwin has been moving between a large and XL frame on the M29 since moving to Intense Factory Racing at the start of the season. At the 2019 season opener in Maribor, Slovenia, Gwin finished sixth behind race winner Loic Bruni (Specialized Gravity Racing).
World Cup downhill resumes in Fort William, Scotland on June 1-2, 2019.
