Cyclocross Star Amy Dombroski Killed in Collision with Truck While Training

Pin It

It deeply saddens us to report that team Telenet-Fidea reported today that their well-known and much-loved cyclocrosser, American Amy Dombroski, was killed in a collision with a truck while motor pacing behind a scooter in Holland.

Dombroski was just 26 years old.

The Boulder and Belgium-based cyclocross racer had just arrived in Belgium after racing in Gloucester and was preparing for her first race of the season in Europe in what was to be her third European season. Her career in cyclocross has been an impressive rise to US and Euro fame.

Our hearts go out to Amy’s friends and family. We will miss you greatly Amy.

On a personal note, over the years of reporting, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Amy as both a reporter and as a friend, and to lose such a wonderful, vibrant person is a huge loss. She will be greatly missed. -M.H.
