When I saw the title of this thread, I assumed it was some kind of melodramatic declaration about how Stevenson had been cheated out of a victory, a la Serena, or "The Fabulous 'Renal Blockage" as I like to call her, but it turns out to be a genuine robbery.
Bad luck, but I have to say that if you set foot in Birmingham you do run the risk of getting robbed by free-loading Brummies. Good job she wasn't playing in Liverpool, otherwise she'd never see hide nor hair of her courtesy car ever again.
I am worried, though, that this will give Stevenson yet another reason to be paranoid and mistrustful of others around her, as though she wasn't already. I'll bet she and her mum are already suspecting that the burglars were hired by her jealous rivals on the Tour, or by racial supremacists who want to force her out of the country.
Say it Quietly, I'm White but I'm Really Rather Contrite
