Professional road cyclist and High Fives Foundation supporter, Peter Stetina wins Tahoe Trail Mountain Bike Race and shares the good word of his own race, Stetina’s Sierra Prospect in the Sierra Sun!
Stetina will be putting on his own road race on Sept. 24, with the Stetina’s Sierra Prospect set to debut at Northstar California Resort. The course will feature distances of 50 miles and 98 miles, with the latter taking riders from Northstar past Incline Village to Highway 50 where the cyclists will descend into Carson City. From there, the riders will make their way toward the outskirts of Reno, and onto Mount Rose Highway for a climb back up to the Lake. The route will end back at Northstar.
“It’s really nice to be at Northstar for a race event and see how they run events because I was able to visualize this is how we want it to be,” said Stetina of racing at Northstar. “We were doing a little bit of recon, if you will, for the Prospect ride.” The race will be scored in a “road rally” format, which mixes in competitive and non-competitive riding.
The course will feature five timed segments, some on flat sections, and some on hills. Outside of those segments riders can take their time, enjoy the scenery or rest at one of the course’s aid stations.
Cost to register for either race is $170, which will benefit the High Fives Foundation. For more information visit sierraprospect.com.
