Interesting but sad story from our friend
He and Sonya were ready to compete for the top spot on the podium

Missing from the day one action was the Topeak-Ergon pair of Jeff Kerkove and Sonya Looney, also of Colorado. Both riders are bike-less, after American Airlines managed to lose track of their bags during the flight from the States, south of the equator to Brazil. Looney was optimistically hopeful that her ride might turn up late Sunday evening, allowing her to at least jump in for stage 2. But Kerkove said his last conversation with the airline left him highly doubtful he’d see his bike anytime soon.
“Apparently the police have it, but someone lost the key to the room they are being stored in. Seriously, that’s what they told me,” said an incredulous Kerkove, who along with Looney, finished third in this race a year ago
