Glenn Inge Magnusson (born July 5, 1969 in Oskarshamn ) is a former Swedish cyclist . In 1995 he secured the national championship in road racing. A few years earlier he had been a multiple time trial champion. This was followed by victories in various European races, particularly the overall classification wins at the Giro di Puglia and the Tour de Normandie . Magnusson was one of only a few Swedes to have participated in each of the three “Grand Tours” at least once during his career: in 2000 he took part in the Tour de France and in 1999, 2000 and 2001 in the Vuelta a España . He was able to crown his three starts at the Giro d'Italia in 1996, 1997 and 1998 with a stage win. In addition, Magnusson represented his country at three Summer Olympic Games and each started in road races. In 1992 in Barcelona , 1996 in Atlanta and 2000 in Sydney , however, he did not manage to place himself in the top ranks.

The end of his career was marked by numerous injuries. For example, he suffered a broken collarbone as a result of a fall at the Grand Prix Pino Cerami in Belgium in 2000 . A few months later he broke his end of January 2001 during a training ride in Tuscany the Fußwurzelkahnbein . A fall on the 16th stage of the Vuelta a España in the same year forced him to withdraw from professional sport.
