New professional squad, Team Type 1, will be featured on a segment on CNBC tonight.
Here's more from the team's press release:
Team Type 1 will be featured this Sunday night, April 6, in a nationally-televised cable broadcast.
The segment on dLifeTV (broadcast on CNBC at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST) will show how champion world-class cyclists are breaking new barriers in the world of diabetes.
dLifeTV will take a brief look back at Team Type 1's history and feature candid interviews with team co-founders Phil Southerland and Joe Eldridge that showcase the challenges they face in managing their diabetes on the road.
Racers from both Team Type 1's 15-member professional team and the squad's 11-rider two-time defending champion Race Across America (RAAM) team were filmed by dLifeTV during a pair of camps in Buellton, Calif., last December and this February. Every rider on the RAAM team has Type 1 diabetes, as do four riders on the pro team.
The segment will also be available for viewing on dLife.com following the CNBC broadcast.
