Saw the Stetina brothers race in the late 1970s in La Vuellta in Bisbee (Arizona).
Finished one-and-two and thought they were going to cross the finish in a dead heat.
Great folks; hoping for the best outcome!

Great news about Dale, it had been a while since I had gotten an update, save a mention by a commentator during a televised race, they said he was progressing and doing well in the rehabilitation facility. Dale and his family will remain on my prayer list, hopefully the progress will continue to be good, his will and determination should serve him well during all the trials ahead. Great cycling family.

Well I promised to keep y'all updated on Dale's recovery but had just plain forgotten about it until reading the results of the Amgen Tour of California today whereas his son Peter, now riding for BMC, finished in 6th place in the General Classification.



Anyway Dale is continuing his long road to recovery and has been back home since February. Sounds like he's been making good progress from a really severe, life threatening head injury.

Here's an old photo of George Mount, Dale Stetina, Steve Tilford, Bob Roll, Roy Knickman, and others riding the same Mt Diablo, as his son did this week, back in the day.

Y'all be careful out there. I'm taking to wearing my helmet even over in Idaho now where I don't have to.
