A Breckenridge officer responded to a report of a hit-and-run. The victim, who returned to his car after watching the USA Pro Challenge, found a note on his car that read: “We saw a big white truck backed into your bike rack and took off. I could not get the plate #.” The bike rack, worth about $650, was clearly bent on the hitch at an angle from the collision. The amount of damage to the bicycle was unclear, but the rear wheel had been knocked off the frame, and the front wheel appeared partially bent and was sitting against the brake. Police are waiting for a damage estimate from the victim.
