A Phoenix dad reached out to ABC 15 Arizona to appeal to a local thief in the hopes they would hear his plea and return his 3-year old daughter’s first dirt bike which was recently stolen from the family’s shed. Alan McCluskey purchased the bike over a year ago and has been patiently waiting for his daughter Haven to be big enough to ride the bike. Recently, McCluskey and Haven installed a set of training wheels on the Yamaha PW50 and Haven was eager to go riding without the assistance of dad for the very first time.
ABC 15 Arizona tipped Feld Entertainment, owners of Monster Energy Supercross to the story and they quickly assembled a team to help the family. Ted Parks with TPJ Fly Racing helped organize the effort in which FLY Racing provided Haven with head-to-toe gear, while Yamaha and local dealership RideNow Powersports Peoria donated a brand new upgraded model – a Yamaha TT-R50. Haven and older brother Trent were presented with the new gear and bike during opening ceremonies at the fourth round of Monster Energy Supercross at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. this past weekend.
