In the Tour de France, expect the unexpected. On a day that was supposed to be without incident, Greg LeMond got a surprising jolt before the start of the 130.8-mile third stage, which ended in Dijon, France. LeMond's new carbon-fiber bicycle that has gained much attention was stolen sometime Sunday night. All the competitors' bicycles were locked together in a storage room, but the chain had been cut by the time mechanics retrieved the bikes Monday morning. Only LeMond's bike was missing.

Someone in France is again stealing garden gnomes, those cheery and fuzzy-cheeked symbols of smug suburban contentment. In an after-hours raid on a Paris park where 2,000 of the elfin figures had been assembled for an exhibition, members of a group calling itself the Garden Gnome Liberation Front swiped a score of the sculptures last weekend.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II ordered guest rooms stripped of valuables before a state visit by Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in 1978, a British newspaper said Sunday. Ceausescu and his wife, Elena, were executed by firing squad during the 1989 Romanian revolution. The Sunday Express said the couple removed thousands of dollars worth of ornaments and fittings from rooms during an official stay in Paris earlier in the year.
