We're learning more about about the young man who lost his life in that stabbing.

Wilberto Rojas, 15, was part of a program in Reading called "Wood to Wonderful."

Mentors in the program help kids recycle old bicycles and take them for rides.

Ryan DeWald a professional cyclist and the owner of Skyline Bicycles says Rojas had a growing passion for the sport.

"Anytime you'd stick a bike under his legs he'd just roll it. If it was two sizes too big or two sizes too small, it didn't matter, he didn't care, he just rode," said Dewald.

Dewald says Rojas had the potential to go far in the world of cycling.
