Pete Stetina on the challenges and rewards of leaving the Pro Tour to build a gravel privateer program during COVID.
The Blackdog Cast is back after a few months, and in this episode I talk to former Garmin, BMC and Trek pro tour rider Pete Stetina on his recent transition from pro tour racer to gravel privateer. We talk in depth about some of the challenges he faced within the pro peloton including coming back from a career threatening injury and the murky world of rider deals and contracts.
Pete also talks in depth about what it's taken for him to strike out on his own to build a privateer gravel racing program in the US during COVID and why every gravel racer needs to fear Belgian breakaway specialist Thomas De Gendt taking up gravel racing!
