BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Boise's Mayor says police have recovered all 14 racing bicycles stolen by thieves who raided the trailer of a professional cycling team that trying to get its top rider to the 2012 London Olympics.

Mayor Dave Bieter (BEAT-uhr) said the bicycles appear to be in good shape. A police department spokesman says the bicycles were found in three separate spots near the Boise State University campus.

Team TIBCO reported $120,000 worth of bicycles and more than a dozen carbon racing wheels stolen from an enclosed trailer after thieves cut the lock late Tuesday or early Wednesday morning. The bikes were valued between $5,000 and $8,000 each.

The team is in Boise for the Exergy Tour, a five-day stage race with 16 teams featuring dozens of riders from around the world.
