Today we're checking out Steve Stefko's 2015 Santa Cruz Stigmata CC. Steve rode this rig to 2nd place at Nationals, (40-44 age group, 1st place amateur), 1st place at Colorado MM State Championships, 2nd place in the Rocky Mountain Regional Cyclocross Championships Open race and to numerous top 5s in Colorado Open races, never out of the top 6.  Not bad for an old working stiff.  Steve considers this to be his best overall season yet but feels he's capable of staying with the Open race leaders rather than leading the chase.
