All I know is that he was a very good time trialer, and that he was killed by a car.
How good was he?
I found this in part of a letter on Cycling News:
"I once knew a rider named John Stenner, who, prior to his death, would laugh about the newfound emphasis on these types of physical traits (VO2max, etc). Here is a rider who once won the National Time Trial Championships by such a large margin that his next two competitors filed a protest- convinced he must have cut the course, or something. Since the next two spots behind him were a former U.S. Hour Record Holder (John Frey), and a then nearly 40 year old rider who would later go the Olympics (Kent Bostick)- and had won this event many, many times between them- I guess they had reason to think that one could not go faster."
Is this true? Did Bostick and the other guy virtually accuse him of cheating?
