American cylcocross racer Amy Dombroski died Thursday when she collided with a truck while training, VeloNews reports.

Dombroski, 26, was motorpacing in Sainte-Catherine-Waver, Belgium, when the accident occurred. The scooter driver she was following avoided injury. The 52-year-old truck driver was reported sober by Het Nieuwsblad.

U.S. national champion Katie Compton told VeloNews that she will miss Dombroski's enthusiasm on the European circuit.

“She will be greatly missed; it saddens me that we lost one of our own so young and tragically,” Compton wrote.

Dombroski was a three-time under-23 national cyclocross champion. She is survived by her fiancé, motorcross racer Ryan Rozinski, Bloomberg reports.
