Ryan's Recovery Fund-Stolen Bike

On Tuesday, August 7th my son Ryan was working at the Dillon Marina in Colorado. He had bike practice after work and had his mountain bike locked to our rack on his car. When he went to leave for practice, the lock had been cut and his bike stolen.  Ryan just turned 17 in July and is starting his Senior year at Summit High School.  His passion for riding bikes started when he was in elementary school. He is devastated that someone would do this to him

He has been training 4-5 days a week, every week.  He is at the top of the leader board for boys 16-18 in the Summit Mountain Challenge local series, he is on the Summit Tigers High School Mountain Bike team and was selected by his coaches to be a Team Captain.  

Over the winter he worked at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area part time teaching kids and in the summer Dillon Marina to make money to buy his bike and do the upgrades.  Our local community has rallied to try and find the bike, we were told by the Dillon Police Department, it is likely the bike was stripped, the frame trashed, and parts being sold off.

His coach posted the following online in our search for the bike:   "Ryan is a hardworking, super responsible, and all-around GREAT kid thus totally undeserving of this heinous crime."

If the funds were to be raised, he would be able to get a new or used bike he could race and train with.  By the awesome chance the bike was found, we would set up a fund with the Summit Tigers High School Mountain Bike Team to help anyone else that something terrible like this happens to.  Our insurance won't cover the bike.  

Please help Ryan.  Anything is appreciated.
