Prized BMX stolen in Rotterdam

Prized BMX stolen in Rotterdam

Bayleigh Rees is the eighth-ranked BMX rider in the world, so when he set off over the weekend for the world champs in the Netherlands he had high hopes of doing well – that is until his prized BMX was stolen just hours after arriving in Rotterdam.

He told reporter Lachlan Forsyth that finding a replacement isn't as simple as popping into the local bike shop.

"It's not your everyday bike," says Rees. "It's light, it's fast, it's stronger than everything else really."

He describes how the frames are fully carbon fibre.

"It's all tricked out with everything I could want really, and it's very expensive."  

And now it's gone, and Rees is gutted.

"Someone will probably sell it for €50 or something."

Watch the full report from Lachlan Forsyth.
