team type 1(


You’ve got be be among the best athletes in the world to  overcome the mountain terrain throughout Colorado’s USA Pro Cycling Challenge, and Team Type 1 fits the bill.

But as if racing across the Rockies by itself isn’t challenging enough, Team Type 1 racers manage to balance not just the race, but also their own diabetes, and doing their part to educate people with diabetes about living – in fact, thriving  – with the disease.

Team Type 1 was organized by two competitive, diabetic riders and now competes all over the world, working with the community as they go.

OnSight has been working with local media to draw attention to TT1 as the riders trained in Boulder, and has been working with a local youth diabetes group in advance of the Pro Cycling Challenge.
