It was 23 months ago that a 21-year-old Gage Hecht made an emphatic statement with his first elite men's victory in cyclo-cross - he did it on the big stage at the US Cyclo-cross National Championships at Steilacoom Park in Lakewood, Washington. 

The now 23-year-old was hitting his stride in the final months with Aevolo, before moving to Human Powered Health the next two seasons, and is aiming to peak for a one-two punch with Pan-American Cyclo-cross Championships on December 4 and USA Cycling Cyclo-cross Nationals on December 12.
