Pete Stetina has spent the last decade racing at the highest level in the world, completing 8 Grand Tours (2 Tour de France, 4 Giro d’Italia, and 2 Vuelta a España) as well as multiple World Championships. During this time, he trained and honed his skills right here in Sonoma County, the place he’s called home since 2011. In 2015, Pete suffered a career-threatening crash, but 3 months later, still reliant on a cane, he took to the starting line, and finished "America's Toughest Stage Race," the Tour of Utah, salvaging his career in the pro circuit.
In 2019, while riding for Trek-Segafredo, Pete dabbled in the emerging gravel racing scene and was immediately inspired. Soon after, he made waves as the 1st international pro cyclist to consciously leave the World Tour for this new discipline. In 2020, the year of pandemic-induced race cancellations, he set the course record on Moab’s infamous 100mi White Rim loop and took advantage of the travel restrictions to deeply explore the roads, hills, and vistas of Sonoma County with his rigorous daily training rides. To put it simply, you are not going to find a rider who knows Sonoma County any better than Pete.
