Boulder pro cyclocross racer Amy Dombroski was memorialized by friends and fellow cyclists Sunday at Boulder's Valmont Bike Park, where about a dozen speakers talked about her intensity as a racer and open hearted nature as a friend.
"Amy is awesome and how lucky are we that we know her," said her friend, John Shippey.
Dombroski, 26, was killed Thursday when she was hit by a truck while on a training ride in Sint-Katelijne-Waver, Belgium, according to a statement released by her Belgian team, Telenet-Fidea.
She had won multiple cyclocross national titles, as well as national titles in road cycling and mountain biking.
Sunday, friends laughed and cried together as they shared stories and read some of the poetry that Dombroski had written, including a poem she wrote when she was 16 after her mother died suddenly.
Chellie Terry, who lives in Boise, remembered her friends dedication to those she loved. She described her as an old soul who could also be goofy and crazy.
