Salt Lake Tribune on the David Zabriskie hyper-burglary: “Both Carlisle and 39-year-old Leopold Howard have now been booked in connection with the case. Police say the two took various items from cyclist David Zabriskie’s home. Some of those belongings included two cars, a racing medal, an Olympic ring, 13 bicycles, computers, space legs and seven Marvel comic statues.” “From businesses such as Nutcase Helmets to Bike Friday, Oregon’s bike madness fuels a $150 million industry. Not to mention that there’s an organized bike ride every 27 minutes.”

BushWatch: The former Prez still has the Secret Service entourage for his mountain bike rides. I just hope he’s gotten rid of the dorky bar ends!

Steamboat Pilot: “A 20-year-old Steamboat Springs man was arrested Tuesday after police said he ran into a bicyclist on Routt County Road 33 and hit two parked cars in downtown Steamboat Springs…” Good thing he hit the cars too or the whole thing would’ve been brushed off.

Zabriskie Theft Hard to Believe Wed, 25 Feb 2009 07:38:20 +0000 David Zabriskie, who finished second, that’s right, No. 2, in the recent Tour of California, obviously does a lot of traveling that takes him away from home. So it’s understandable that thieves would have an unattended house to target. What’s hard to believe is that they could take everything — cars, bikes, personal items, collector’s items — in what must have either taken upwards or more than an hour or a coordinated effort of several persons, without being detected.

I guess it’s understandable if he lives in one of those faceless suburbs where people never seem to be at home. But still…

You have to feel for the guy. On Cloud 9 one day, in the dumps the next.
