Team Gamin-Slipstream rider Dave Zabriskie came home from the Tour of California to discover his house had been emptied by burglars.

Zabriskie alerted his followers on the social networking website Twitter to the bad news.  His first post saying, "My house was broken into while at TOC. They took everything, a lot of bikes,cars, and you name it they got it."  He's hoping the cycling community stay alert for the items. "If anyone out there sees anything you think might be mine, let me know. Thanks...DZ."

One can only hope he has some of the same luck as Lance Armstrong did last week.
