  • While racing with diabetes in the peloton, we strive to keep our blood sugar in a target range.
  • So we constantly check our blood sugar – before, during and after races and training sessions.
  • If we’re above or below our target range, we may make adjustments to our food or medication.
  • And we work closely with our health care team to develop a solid plan to keep us racing with diabetes at the top level.
