Geraint Thomas is a unique trophy lost: cup of Tour de France stolen in exhibition

The Coupe Omnisports that Geraint Thomas at the end of July as the winner of the 105th Round of France received, was stolen. That reports his team Sky Wednesday.

Team Sky lent the previous month, the trophy from the Italian famous bicycle manufacturer Pinarello for an exhibition at The Cycle Show in Birmingham. The organizers discovered after the end of the three-day event that the Coupe Omnisports was gone. The police has started an investigation.

“It is incredibly unfortunate that this happened,” says Thomas. “It goes without saying that the trophy is of relatively little worth to those who have taken them, but she means a lot to me and for the team. Hopefully that person is willing to have the trophy to give back. A trophy is important, but, of course, are the fantastic memories of this incredible summer, the most important. And no one can take away.”

The trophies that Team Sky recently won in the three grand tours alongside the Tour of 2018 with Thomas the Vuelta 2017 and Giro 2018 with Chris Froome), were recently exhibited in different places in the United Kingdom, so the fans have the chance to give them a close to admire.
