Peterson was a member of the national champion team in the 45+ Team Pursuit, along with Major Taylor Velodrome regular Curtis Tolson and nationally recognized riders Chris Carlson and Kenneth Williams. Peterson and his teammates topped the podium and set a new national record of 4:36:8. Peterson also won fifth place in the 3K Individual Pursuit, turning in a personal best time of 3:38.8.   Congratulations to Coach Dean Peterson!
