[updated 12/24/2013]

Brannan Fix (Boo Bicycles) and Gage Hecht (Team Specialized Racing) became the new Colorado state cyclocross champions today in the junior men 17-18 and 15-16 categories respectively. Both plan to race at nationals in Boulder this January.

Fix won by three seconds over Garrett Gerchar (Clif Bar Devo Cyclocross Team). Chris Key (Boulder Cycle Sport Devo p/b BJC) came in third. The new champion has been racing mainly on the UCI circuit over the past month and won the Colorado Cross Classic junior 17-18 race in October.

A regular in the local men’s elite/open races, Hecht also won in his category at the Colorado Cross Classic as well as the Boulder Cup. At today’s state championship event, Evan Clouse (Canyon Bicycles) from Utah placed second with Jack Tanner (Boulder Junior Cycling) third among the 15-16’s.

Check out scenes from both races which started two minutes apart and a post-race interview with the two champs in this video from Rhyolite Park in Castle Rock, Colorado.
