BOULDER COUNTY, CO. (THECOUNT) — Magnus White GoFundMe: White, a USA Cycling rising star, who had won the 2021 Junior 17-18 Cyclocross National Championship, died while training in Boulder County, Colorado. He was only 17.

USA Cycling released the following statement:


On Sunday, July 30th, we received the news that National Team athlete Magnus White was struck by a car on a bike ride in his home of Boulder, Colorado. White was focused on his final preparations before leaving for Glasgow, Scotland to compete in the Junior Men’s Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Championships on August 10, 2023.

White fell in love with cycling at an early age through Boulder Junior Cycling. 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 teammates and local community. He won the 2021 Junior 17-18 Cyclocross National Championships, then went on to compete with the USA Cycling National Team for a full season of European Cyclocross racing and closed out the year at the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Championship in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He proudly represented the U.S. and the Boulder community at another Cyclocross World Championships in January of 2023 in Hoogerheide. The summer of 2023 marked a new chapter for White, where he earned a spot on the Mountain Bike World Championships team.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to the White family, his teammates, friends, and the Boulder community during this incredibly difficult time.

We ride for Magnus.

Friends of the White Family have organized a GoFundMe in memory of Magnus.

Details on the accident were not made available as of Monday morning.
