A four-time triathlon champion has had her 2011 world-beating bike stolen.

Ironman veteran Chrissie Wellington, 37, said her Cannondale Slice was taken at the weekend from an office in Oakcroft Road, Chessington.

She said: "It's got huge sentimental value. I tend to like to keep many of the things I compete in or on.

"This one is really special to me. This was the race I was most proud of.

"He basically walked it out of the office block and rode away on it."

The black-and-white time trial bike has Shimano components and electronic gears, and a small but distinctive hibiscus flower stuck to the frame.

Ms Wellington won the Ironman world championship in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011, and was made an MBE in 2010.

Is there a description of the thief? And is there a photo of the bike you can circulate please? A reminder to everyne: always lock your bike where ever you leave it - in the street, at school, at the shops, at work and at home too.

Actually, I find the best lock is no lock. Then you won't let it out of your sight. Suggest the owner keeps an eye on http://www.bikeshd.c
