Athletes fight — and win — over $1 million bicycle dispute

January 29, 2024

Mountain View triathlete Jimmy Dworkin puts himself through the paces. “I’ve been doing triathlons since 1995,” he said. But lately, he’s endured an unexpected obstacle course: a marathon battle over his custom bike.

To compete in Spain in September, Jimmy paid a company he’d previously used, called TriBike Transport, $824 to ship his bike there. It arrived for the race. “Representing Team USA was a lot of fun,” Dworkin said.

But by December, back at home in California, he was still riding a backup bike. He says his main bike was, essentially, held hostage on the way back from Spain. NBC Bay Area
