U.S. Cycling Champion Killed When Bike Collides with Car in San Francisco

The death of Ethan Boyes, a ten-time U.S. cycling champion, sent shockwaves through the sports world. Boyes was struck and killed by a car while cycling in San Francisco. His widely-respected career spanned many years and included numerous championship wins, earning him a place among the cycling greats. Boyes was the current Masters’ Track World Champion in the Men’s 40-44 Time Trial and Sprint event, in addition to holding records for over 40 riders and the American record for the 500-meter “flying start” track time trial. As the news of his untimely death spread, tributes flowed in for the athlete, with fellow cyclists and fans expressing their admiration for Boyes’ skill and dedication to his sport.

According to Shaana Rahman, a spokesperson for the family, his death has left devastating effects on both the family and the community. Ethan’s impressive track record as a cyclist was matched only by his kind and humble personality, as attested by his former teammate Karl Baumgart on Facebook. Ethan was not only regarded as one of the fastest sprinters in the world, but also as one of the nicest people in any circle. 

Ethan Boyes was more than just a skilled athlete; he was a respected member of the American track cycling community. USA Cycling expressed their deep sorrow in a Facebook post, recognizing the impact Ethan had at every level of competition. His presence will be sorely missed at local, regional, national, and even world events. Meanwhile, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition also added their voice to the chorus of condolences. They noted Ethan’s significance to the San Francisco cycling community and highlighted his character, invoking the kindhearted and gracious spirit that Ethan brought to track racing. It is clear that Ethan’s legacy will be felt far beyond the races he rode in. Our thoughts go out to his loved ones during this difficult time. The Presidio of San Francisco, a former U.S. Army Post turned national park, is the site of an ongoing investigation by the U.S. Park Police.
