We don’t have to deal with road bikes getting stolen too often, fortunately, but it does happen. In 2019 a thief went to great lengths to steal one. In broad daylight, he took one of the spare road bikes off the roof of one of Team Jumbo-Visma’s team cars, just before the third stage in Critérium du Dauphiné. The police got involved, but they never recovered the bike.
“We want to avoid these situations”, says Marcel Kruithof, manager Service Course Team Jumbo-Visma. “That’s why we are happy to welcome BikeFinder as a partner. In 2015, this Norwegian company started with the development of a tracking tool for every type of bike. The current system works via GPS, GSM and Bluetooth and helps to track down a bike’s exact location. BikeFinder supplies us with trackers for the whole team so we can protect all our riders’ bikes against bike theft.
BikeFinder works on the basis of a (paid) subscription. The trackers of BikeFinder are for sale on our webshop as of today.
