Newly-crowned US Junior Cyclocross National Champion Gage Hecht had a great start, rocketing down the long starting pavement sitting in sixth, and then moving up quickly as the group hit the dirt. Hecht would hit the first muddy hairpin descent on foot at the front, leading the entire field around the off camber downhill turn.

Iserbyt would pass Hecht and run away with the day’s victory and World Cup title, but Hecht would fight tooth and nail to make sure that Iserbyt would be the only one to pass him in his fight for second.

By the end, only Dutch racer Roel van der Stegen would also get by him, leaving Hecht to finish third, just five seconds out of second.

American Lance Haidet, who led the early laps at the Junior Men’s race at the 2015 National Championships, finished in 18th, while Brannan Fix finished in 29th. Cooper Willsey finish in 46th.

Canada sent more Junior racers to the 2015 Hoogerheide World Cup than the US, with Quinton Disera the top finisher in 31st. Willem Boersma finished in 44th, Oliver Evans in 57th, Stefan Ritter in 62nd, and Liam Mulcahy in 63rd.

Great Britian also sent a large Junior team. British Junior Arthur Green was 26th, Williams Gascoyne was 34th, Joshua Waters was 55th, and Alfie Moses finished 58th.
