Team Type 1 - ‘Pedal With The Pros'
2010 Pro Team Camp Experience Open to Fans. Full
team camp with Men, Women's and Elite teams deliver a hands on 'pro lifestyle'
in support of teams European campaign.
Team Type 1 is opening up its 2010 training camp in northeast Georgia to
cyclists of all skill levels as part of its “Pedal With The Pros” fundraiser.
From February 12th to 14th participants will experience what it is like
to be a member of Team Type 1, the world’s only professional cycling team with
riders who have Type 1 diabetes. They will enjoy a memorable, exclusive
experience by riding, eating, learning and relaxing with members of the Team
Type 1 men’s and women’s professional teams, as well as the Elite and
Team Type 1 CEO Phil Southerland said inquiries from Team Type 1 fans and
supporters about how they could show their support for the program led to the
creation of Pedal With The Pros.
“This is a great way to give those people a real hands-on experience at what
the ‘pro lifestyle; and more specifically, what the ‘pro lifestyle with
diabetes’ is like,” Southerland said. “We can show people with and without the
disease the additional steps our athletes take to be the best they can be, and
how we use diabetes to make us better people.”
Southerland said money raised from Pedal With The Pros will go toward
supporting the European racing campaign for the professional men’s team in 2010.
“This is just another step to put us on the fast track to the Giro d'Italia
in 2011 and the Tour de France in 2012,” Southerland said.
The $5,000 per-person registration fee includes air transportation to and
from camp (U.S. domestic flights only), hotel accommodations and meals.
Participants also receive daily massages, full mechanical assistance and they
will go home with a complete Team Type 1 cycling kit (jersey, shorts, socks and
other accessories), logo bag and water bottle.

Deadline to register is Feb. 4.
Team Type 1 Promotion and Fundraising Manager Jennifer Helms said Pedal With
The Pros promises to be a memorable experience, regardless of age or ability.
"This opportunity is perfect for individuals who love cycling, want to support
Team Type 1 and make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year,” she
