More about the incident:

Hi Cycling Community. They stole my Toyota Fortuner with my MTB and all my cycling accessories and kit from Cornwall Hill sport fields (was parked in secured area, with steering wheel lock fitted, with 2 tracking devices, the works) (stole 2 Fortuners at same time). And they decided to steal all my stuff 2 days before we were meant to leave for Desert Dash Namibia. But these criminals will not kill our Desert Dash dream, worked too hard, and my family were looking forward to the adventure. Somehow we will make the start of Desert Dash come Friday. But I need help....can I please ask that you help spread the message.... Was thinking, the criminals came for my Fortuner (02/12/2023), not for my bike. So, they are not bike sindicate professionals, and they most probably do not have formal planned market for my bike. So they might slip up in offsetting my bike. Tracking company could track my car to Troyville in JHB yesterday. Can you please share this on all your groups, cycling communities, at bike shops, social media etc. Will send photo of bike, thanks again.
