Team Type 1 (TT1) is a professional and amatuer race team comprised of members who suffer from type one or type two diabetes.
Quoting from TT1′s Facebook page:
“Our goal is to inspire people with diabetes around the world to take control of their health through diet, exercise and proper health care,” said team co-founder Phil Southerland who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at seven months old. “As a professional team, racing against the world’s best cyclists, we’ll be able to deliver that message to a much wider audience.”
Team Type 1 has grown from 8 riders in 2006 to over 75 team members, pro men and women cyclists, elite cyclists (all with Type 1), triathlete team (all Type 1), and and Team Type 2 all person with Type 2 diabetes.
Team Type 1 is dedicated to people with diabetes worldwide. Goal: HBA1C – > strive for 6.5."
