A multi-talented rider, Gage has an illustrious background in cyclocross including an elite national title in the discipline. His KOM victory on a rainy day at the Famenne Ardenne Classic showed that these transferable skills help him in the toughest conditions. Gage has also displayed his talents in the biggest stateside races. In 2018, at just 20 years of age, he beat WorldTour riders in the opening stage of the Colorado Classic and in 2021 took victory in the time trial at the Joe Martin Stage Race, going on to finish second overall.
Away from cycling, Hecht is an aviation enthusiast who holds a private pilot’s license and is currently completing a degree in aviation aerospace science. He also enjoys indulging in his other hobby of playing the ukulele. Gage’s faith is also an important motivating and steadying factor in his life.
