Team Type 1 Re-Signs Moises Aldape, Adds Ricardo Escuela
Team Type 1 is bolstering its strength in the field sprints for 2009 with the addition of Argentinian speedster Ricardo Escuela while re-signing Mexican Moises Aldape, who enjoyed a breakout season of his own.
Aldape and Escuela are the first two signings announced by the second-year professional squad that was founded to inspire people living with Type 1 diabetes to better manage their health and overcome obstacles often associated with the condition.
we enter 2009, but they also increase our ability to communicate this message to the Hispanic and Spanish speaking community in America that struggles with an increasing population affected by diabetes,” Beamon said.
Team Type 1 was created in 2004 by two racers with Type 1 diabetes, Phil Southerland and Joe Eldridge. The pair led the squad to back-to-back victories in the Race Across America (RAAM) in 2006 and 2007 before joining Fabio Calabria and Timothy Hargrave as the team’s four professional riders with Type 1 diabetes on the roster in 2008.
