Iljo Keisse, Maximiliano Richeze, and Fernando Gaviria were training in California when a group of black bears had broken into their accommodation and eaten their food.
While there isn’t a video of the break-in, a staff member did catch two bear cubs playing just a few metres from the house.
But then they got hungry and decided to let themselves in. We where out training luckily… They made a little mess and didn’t leave a thank you note ? pic.twitter.com/4ZnL0Mi2Qi

“So yesterday this bear family visited the Wolfpack, mom chilled a bit in the shadow and in the meantime her 3 cups where playing in our backyard… So cute!” Keisse wrote on Twitter.
“But then they got hungry and decided to let themselves in. We where out training luckily… They made a little mess and didn’t leave a thank you note.”
Former Quick-Step rider, Matteo Trentin, also suffered his fair share of bear visits while at the team after crashing into one in the same area.
Trentin posted a photo of his broken helmet after the crash with the caption: ‘Always wear a helmet fellas!! It can also happen that during training a bear cross your path when you are in a fast downhill. No space to brake so I crashed into with him!! He wasn’t a fluffy teddy bear”
