“A strong team needs a solid base; you can’t be ambitious if you don’t have a solid foundation. Both Peter (Stetina) and Fumy (Beppu) have a track record as team players and helpers when it really matters."

Trek-Segafredo has announced that it has agreed with Peter Stetina and Fumiyuki Beppu to extend the term of their contracts by two years through 2018.

29-year-old Peter Stetina, who came back from a near-career-ending leg injury in April 2015, showed his capacity this year, both as a leader and a high mountain support rider, and is pleased to renew with Trek-Segafredo:

"I'm beyond excited to continue with Trek-Segafredo. They believed in me when I was sidelined last year, and loyalty means a lot to me. I quickly found myself at home in the Trek family and really enjoyed 2016. I'm honored to continue my career here."

Stetina, who climbed to second place in the queen stage of the Tour of California, is ambitious for what lies ahead.

"I will finish this year content, but not satisfied. If you had told me last year, while I struggled to walk, that I would recover my leg strength, show my potential in the California mountains, and race the Tour de France as a high mountain domestique, I would have taken that deal in a heartbeat! So in light of this, I think 2016 was successful. It was hard, and I pushed myself deeply to rehabilitate quickly.”

"But I am still hungry: I missed that big result. I've already got an eye toward 2017, when I can have a normal winter training, and not play catch-up all spring but actually race in the front. As usual, I'll take my chances in one-week races especially in the USA, and support my Trek-Segafredo teammates in the high mountains of the WorldTour and Grand Tours.”

Fumiyuki Beppu, known as ‘Fumy’ within the team, has been with Trek-Segafredo since 2014 and has rightfully claimed a spot in the infrastructure of the team. His charisma and relentless work ethic make him an indispensable teammate.

"I am very delighted to renew with the team for another two years. I have experienced so many things with this group since I joined in 2014, and I couldn’t imagine riding for another team. I am eager to ride more Grand Tours and Monuments and challenge myself even more. I also would want to ride more aggressively and actively, and train harder than ever. I'd like to express my gratitude to the team and Luca (Guercilena) in particular for the continuous trust in me as an athlete.”

General Manager Luca Guercilena said:


“A strong team needs a solid base; you can’t be ambitious if you don’t have a solid foundation. Both Peter (Stetina) and Fumy (Beppu) have a track record as team players and helpers when it really matters. Peter was super important for us in the Tour de France in helping Bauke Mollema on the mountain stages. The story of his tenacity in fighting back from a broken leg makes it all that more impressive. And Fumy is an equally impressive domestique and also road captain. He’s a very versatile rider and therefore has a very important place in our team. I am pleased to have both Fumy and Peter for another two years!"
