Former pro racer Yanto Barker has reported two Colnago bikes stolen. Reported stolen on 29th November, the black Colnago Concept and red Colnago Prestige CX are still missing and were taken from the Richmond area of South West London.

The Concept features gold detailing and a Shimano Dura-Ace groupset, while the Prestige has green and white highlights, and has a SRAM groupset.

Barker is offering £1,000 worth of Le Col kit as a reward for information that leads to the recovery of the two bikes.

Barker, who retired from racing after the 2016 season, now runs Le Col full time. The cycling clothing company was founded back in 2011 and provides Team Wiggins with race apparel.

Over a 21 career, Barker raced for Linda McCartney Racing, Team Raleigh and One Pro Cycling, among others. British champion on the road as junior, his career highlights included winning the British Cycling Elite Road Series and Spring Cup in 2014.
