Peter Stetina (born August 8, 1987) is an American professional road racing cyclist who rides for UCI ProTeam Trek–Segafredo.[1]

Career[edit]

Following an eight-year stent with Garmin–Sharp,[2] Stetina signed with BMC Racing Team for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.[1][3] Born in Boulder, Colorado, Stetina currently resides in Girona, Catalonia, Spain.[4] Stetina's father Dale, and uncle Wayne are former road racing cyclists.[5]

In April 2015, at the Tour of the Basque Country, Stetina suffered a broken knee cap and four broken ribs on the first stage. On the run-in to the finish, he slammed into a metal pole on the side of the road. His team blamed the organizers for poor rider safety measures.[6] In August 2015 it was announced that Stetina would join former Garmin team-mate Ryder Hesjedal at Trek Factory Racing on a one-year deal for 2016, with a role supporting Hesjedal and Bauke Mollema as a domestique whilst having the opportunity to lead the team in American races.[7]
