Morrison has bike stolen just days before a big race


Local athlete Jay Morrison needs your help after his bike was stolen only days before a 1,200 km race.

Morrison and two other Fort St. John residents will leave in just a few days for the 17th annual Paris-Brest-Paris race. Sometime Friday, Morrison’s specialized Tri-Cross bike was stolen from Ferris Fast Cycles in Fort St. John.

Here is a description of the bike:

  • Specialized Tricross Expert
  • Drop bars
  • 58 cm
  • Red and white
  • SPD pedals
  • Armadillo tires

Morrison is set to leave for France on Thursday and needs the bike back in order to compete.

The 1,230 km marathon, held every 4 years, begins in Guyancourt, a Paris Suburb and cyclists will ride through tertiary roads and small villages to Brest in Brittany, located on the Atlantic Coast. Upon arriving, cyclists will then have to turn around and ride back to Paris.

If you have any information about the location of this bike, call 250-785-8948.
