London, Eng. (NNCNOW.com) --- Duluth, Minn. resident Jessica Rossing left earlier this week to compete in the World Triathlon Series Grand Final in London, but she will possibly be missing one critical piece of equipment come race day.

"London has been a blast so far," Rossing wrote Wednesday on Facebook. "With one major set back though... My bike got stolen today. Hopefully a miracle will happen and it'll be found. Otherwise I'll be borrowing a bike."

As of Wednesday night, there had been no progress reported in locating Rossing's race bike. The triathlon consists of a .93-mile swim, 25-mile bike, and 6.2 mile-run.

Rossing will compete Sunday morning in her second Grand Final, with the first coming in Beijing in 2011. She will be competing in the women's age 24-29 division, with her race set to start at 1:00 a.m. CT.
