The American Juniors of cyclocross have not only landed in Europe, but they are making their names known. Gavin Haley and Gage Hecht have already put on a clinic in the last two weeks, each of them tallying a win in the Junior race attached to a World Cup stage.
Haley, with a racing age of 17, also landed a podium spot in the Superprestige at Spa-Francorchamps: a brutal, European-style course that drained riders of everything they had by the last lap, and then some. Haley takes to climbs like a champ, and shows the crowd a thing or two about descending on a Formula 1 track.
The future of American cyclocross certainly looks bright. Video below posted on YouTube by user Olivier Iserbyt:
