When I first saw Stephen Hyde race cross at Nittany CX my reaction was probably the same as most, “who is that kid!” Hyde took his place at the front of the race amongst talent like Todd Wells, Jacob Lasley and Adam Myerson to name a few, at times dictating the pace. Fast forward one week later and Hyde takes on Jonathan Page in a head to head battle at Charm City CX besting the veteran and at the time National Champion on day 2 of the event to win his first UCI race. Since then Stephen’s trajectory towards the top of the sport has been at lightning speed, this past season saw him on the podium weekly at the biggest event in the country including back to back victories at the UCI C1 events in Louisville, Kentucky. Stephen’s attitude is infectious and easy to see his love and dedication to the sport of cyclocross, I was able catch up with Stephen a few weeks after his season ended in Europe as he begins to refocus for the coming year.
