_LIS1660 One of Team Garmin’s great young guns, Stetina won back-to-back titles at the U23 U.S. time trial championships in 2008 and 2009, was runner-up in the 2008 national road race championships and finished sixth at the 2008 worlds in the U23 individual time trial. In his ProTour debut with Team Garmin, Stetina made it into a two-rider break for 160km in the Volta a Catalunya and earned a spot on the stage at day’s end for taking over the KOM jersey.

Edge800 data Hesjedal and Stetina have used Garmin’s Edge 705 and Edge 500 in their racing and training, and now there’s a new Edge that boasts the best of both worlds. Building on its popular predecessors, Edge 800 is smaller and sleeker than the Edge 705, yet features a larger 2.6” display with a simple touchscreen interface. And while Edge 800 gets its streamlined design from the ultralight Edge 500, the color display and versatile mapping options make exploration more enjoyable and efficient than ever. The latest version of Garmin’s free BaseCamp software (www.garmin.com/basecamp) gives users an easy tool to survey the terrain and plan routes. BaseCamp lets users plan and preview routes – along with viewing elevation changes – and then send those routes to Edge 800, Edge 705 and Edge 605 as courses to follow.

Using information directly from GPS satellites, Edge 800 accurately tracks speed, distance, time, GPS position, elevation, calories burned, climb and descent. For even more real-time data on display, Edge 800 syncs wirelessly through ANT+™ technology with compatible third-party power meters as well as Garmin heart rate monitors and speed/cadence sensors.
