American junior rider Magnus White has died after being hit by a car while training in his Colorado home town.
The 17-year-old, a US junior men’s national team member, was out riding in Boulder when the accident happened.
White had been preparing for the Junior Men’s Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Championships in Glasgow next month.
“It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share the news that 17-year-old Magnus White has passed away in a training accident,” USA Cycling said.
“We ride for Magnus.”
White won the 2021 Junior 17-18 Cyclocross National Championships and competed in the 2022 and 2023 UCI Cyclocross World Championships.
USA Cycling added: “He was a rising star in the off-road cycling scene and his passion for cycling was evident through his racing and camaraderie with his team-mates and local community.”
