Stetina vows to make full recovery from Pais Vasco crash

After 10 days of being bed-ridden in a Spanish hospital, American Peter Stetina is itching to get home and get started on recovering from his dramatic crash on the first stage of the Vuelta al Pais Vasco. On Friday, he will get his wish, getting the dubious honour of flying business class because his broken leg and shattered kneecap prevent him from being able to bend his knee. He is due to arrive in Salt Lake City on Saturday, where he will begin the process of rebuilding his strength and re-starting his career as a professional cyclist.
