Off-road gravel and endurance pro Peter Stetina announced he will be the new title sponsor of the North Tahoe high school team for its upcoming season.
“When I was growing up I would have loved this scene so much, but it didn’t exist,” said Stetina in an Instagram post. “I had an idea this spring: What if I could help the next generation in a more direct way? Tahoe is the perfect location for the next (two) wheeled stars to hone their skills and I want to help how I can.”
Stetina announced he will help provide some funding to the team through his Privateer program. He also said he’ll help the team with workouts, drop in on a few practices, and share tips on what he’s learned from decades of racing.
“This a huge deal for our team and a really unique situation,” said North Tahoe Coach Jessi Ernst in an email. “We’re hoping that by getting this story out it will inspire other pros to reach out and sponsor their local youth cycling programs.”
Stetina has been a staple in the area’s biking scene, previously hosting gran fondos in Truckee. Last month he organized the mixed terrain Paydirt bike race in Carson City.
