Race Across America: Team Type 1

Please forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I’m rather amazed that Race Across America isn’t headline news on this site! RAAM is over 3000 miles and team type 1 should do it in under 6 days! this is considered one of the most (or the most) grueling bike ride in the world. All of the men and women who are doing this are amazing, including Team type 1

and, not diabetes related, but there is also a woman on a 4 person team who was paralyzed from the chest down when she was shot in the line of duty. Amazing.
