The Russian team have had all of their bikes stolen at the cycling world championships, team leader Alexandr Kolobnev said on Saturday.

A similar incident happened in February when the Garmin-Sharp team had all their bikes stolen during the Tour Mediterranéen in France.

The men's elite road race will be held on Sunday over 272.3 kilometres (272.3 miles) from Lucca to Florence.
