Martin Dupre Stolen Bikes Funded – See the results, first build… GHP 24″ Expert

So you may have heard Martin’s 3 kids bike got stolen recently from his car right at the beginning of the season…

On Sunday 13th March 3 bikes were stolen from Martin Dupre’s Car whilst parked securely (at least thought this was the case) in Asda Car Park next to the NCC in Manchester, this was round 1 and 2 of the BMX National Series

Martin has been in touch with Asda but unfortunatley the CCTV are unable to pick up who stole them, due to the location of the camera, so Martin has been left with the headache of trying to replace these bikes!

As most of the BMX community know, race bikes are expensive and Martin’s bikes were of good spec, he has worked hard to try and buy the best for his kids.

it would be great if we can all give a little to help Martin replace these bikes.

Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and I know Martin and his family will be so grateful for anything you can give.

His successful gofundme netted enough to sort almost everything out luckily so he’e been able to continue the season, your support has meant a lot.
“The support offered has really made all the difference, between replacing them or having nothing!”  Martin would really like to thank everyone involved.

Thank you everyone who helped to raise money for Martin, it is truly amazing how many kind generous people are out there! We have managed to raise over £950 in total (a fee is taken from go fund for their service) and the money is on it’s way to Martin, hopefully this will help to replace the bikes stolen. Lisa xx

Great news, we’ve finalised the designs with RSD!
