According to initial reports, the youngster was on a training ride before competing in the World Junior Mountain Bike Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.
White was a rising star in American cycling having won the 2021 Junior National Cyclocross Championship, thus earning him a spot on the United States National Team. This year he had started competing in road racing and mountain biking. He proudly represented the United States and the Boulder community at another Cyclocross World Championship in January of 2023 in Hoogerheide, the Netherlands.
