The Colorado State Patrol Sunday identified Stetina as the accident victim. Rich Sheehan, a spokesman for Boulder Community Hospital, said Stetina, 57 is in critical condition.

Stetina is a two-time winner of Colorado's Coors Classic and father of Boulder pro-cyclist Peter Stetina, 26, according to the web site 303cycling.com.
