<p>Magnus White, a member of the United States Junior Men’s National Team, passed away on Sunday at the age of 17 after being struck by an automobile while practicing in Boulder, Colorado, where he lived.</p>

<p>According to a statement from USA 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.”</p>
<p>We bike in Magnus’ honor.</p>
<p>White considered his victory in the 2021 Junior 17–18 Cyclocross National Championships a “pivotal moment” because it gave him the chance to compete in European races.</p>
<p>He later competed in a complete season of European cyclocross racing with the USA Cycling National Team and finished the year at the 2022 UCI Cyclocross World Championship in Arkansas.</p>
<p>In January of this year, he competed for the United States in another Cyclocross World Championships in Hoogerheide, and this summer, he qualified for the Mountain Bike World Championships team.</p>
<p>When White was 10, he started competing on a national level, and he gave his father credit for getting him interested in it.</p>
<p>White says in his biography on the USA Cycling website, “My dad really got me into cycling when I was growing up since he raced road. Then I found my local team (Boulder Junior Cycling), which has some very amazing coaches who got me where I am now.</p>
