He may not be Lance Armstrong, but that does not mean that he can't have the same problems as the seven time TdF Champ.
Just like Armstrong last year, Craig Alexander recently has his race bike stolen.
In a message posted on slowtwitch.com the Ironman World Champion described what happened to his bike in an attempt to get the word out and hopefully recover the stolen bike.

"Last night, us and 4 of our neighbors were broken into and a large number of items were stolen, including Craigs bikes, a car, scooter, surf boards, golf clubs, tools etc.
We are looking for your assistance to spread these details far and wide. Feel free to send on the attached document with Crime Stopper Ph number 1800 333 000 as we feel that flooding the market with details for such a unique bike may help it be recovered.
Most important for us was that both of Craigs Orbea bikes (road and time trial/racing bike) were stolen along with a bunch of other bike/cycling equipement.
See the document photos and details of the 2 Bikes stolen.

This bike is very unique as there are only a handful of bikes in Australia that have the Shimano Di2 electronic group sets on it. It also has a Shimano Protype SRM power meter installed on the bike. This is distinctive by looking at the crank drive arm. This is the only one in Australia and there are only a handful of the world.
