Remember when Armstrong's bike was stolen?


Ok so a few months ago, Lance Armstrong and 2 of his ASTANA teammates had their bikes stolen during the Amgen Tour of California. Luckily, they found one of the three bikes (Lance’s) and the man who stole it.  So what is going to happen?

Sacramento County court documents show 40-year-old Lee Crider is to be sentenced Monday to three years in prison for burglary and theft. He pleaded no contest June 1 to stealing Armstrong’s time trial bike and two others from a trailer after the Sacramento prologue to the Tour of California in February.

A second man, 33-year-old Dung Hoang Le of Elk Grove, pleaded no contest June 1 to receiving stolen property. He has been sentenced to 90 days in jail, to be served on the sheriff’s work project.

A police report says he bought Armstrong’s $10,000 bike from Crider for $200. He later turned it in to police.

He bought a $10,000 bike for $200? What a deal!
