Team Type 1 is made up of champions – winners at endurance cycling who conquer life with Type 1 diabetes at the same time. In just its second showing in the annual Race Across America (RAAM), the team took home the victory – beating every other team by more than three hours.

"Team Type 1’s goal is to prove that by using the tools provided to manage diabetes, exercise and healthy living, a person with diabetes can do the same as a normal person – only better,” said Phil Southerland, team founder.

The Team Type 1 Race Across America team is comprised of ten persons with Type 1. These international cyclists, who must all monitor their blood sugar with testing, insulin through their pumps, diet, and exercise, are inspiring others with their triumphant journey.
