Help us honor the memory of Magnus White, a bright and talented 17-year-old, who tragically lost his life on Saturday, July 29, in Boulder, CO. Magnus was taken from us while doing what he loved most, riding his bike. Magnus’s family is strong, but support from their community will go a long way to give them time to grieve.
Magnus’s greatest joy in life was cycling after playing flag football when he was younger. He was also an accomplished skier.
He began cycling when he was eight and quickly rose through the cycling ranks. Magnus’s journey in cycling was driven by a tireless work ethic and a deep desire to achieve his personal best. He was proud to represent his community and country around the world. Magnus accomplished many of the goals he set for himself. Magnus won the USA cyclocross national championship in December 2021. He raced in the UCI cyclocross world championship in 2022 and 2023 and was scheduled to race in the UCI mountain bike world championships on August 10. He raced for Boulder Junior Cycling and represented the United States at various international events. He was to start his senior year in high school in a few weeks.
Magnus leaves behind his parents Jill and Michael and his brother Eero and countless friends worldwide. The family will use any contributions as needed for support of moving through this tragic period and to honor his legacy.
Please join us in remembering Magnus and supporting his family during this difficult time.
