    JERICHO — A U.S. cyclist from Colorado with ties to Vermont has died in an accident while training in Belgium.

    The Young Telenet-Fidea Cycling team said 26-year-old Amy Dombroski, a professional cyclocross racer, died Thursday while doing speed training behind a scooter when she collided with a van.

    Manager Hans van Kasteren said she was catapulted into the air, thrown 50 meters and died instantly.

    Dombroski was a native of Jericho and lived in Boulder, Colo. She won three under-23 cyclocross national titles and moved to Belgium last year to train with her team.
