1992 Olympian and former U.S. National Team member John Stenner, one of the founding fathers of Collegiate Cycling, spent his lifetime as a bicycle innovator and strove to elevate the quality of competition of the sport he loved.
Stenner, 29, died when he was struck by a pick-up truck while traveling home from work in May, 1994, near Mead, Colo. Following his death, donations to the family poured in, and the scholarship fund in his name was established, and the original donations have since been converted into an endowment. The John Stenner Collegiate Cycling Scholarship awards continue to be funded by the annual donations to the USA Cycling Foundation.
Stenner sought the best in everything he did on or off the bike. The Stenner Collegiate Cycling Scholarship program recognizes athletes like John who strive for perfection and excellence throughout their lifetimes and in everything they set out to achieve.
