Longtime American road racer Peter Stetina revealed his plans to “ruin gravel” in 2020. Following his retirement announcement after last year’s WorldTour season, the former 14-year pro aims to hit the gravel race circuit. With his family’s legacy in the roots of modern American cycling, it’s only fitting that Stetina sets the racing precedent in the quickest growing segment of riding.
Stetina has nineteen of the biggest gravel races on the schedule including Dirty Kanza, Crusher in the Tushar, The Rift and his own Paydirt Prospect fondo. Also on the schedule is SoCal’s mixed-surface Belgian Waffle Ride, where Stetina made his first alternative race appearance in 2019 in Trek Segafredo colors and captured the win.
