Mike was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2010 at the age of 43. To say this came as a surprise to him was quite an understatement. However, to finally understand why his body was reacting the way it was, was a relief. Mike has raced bikes, be it road, mountain, cyclocross or triathlon for over 30 seasons. Over that span he has competed in well over 800 events with 85 career age-group, overall or series wins. Since his diagnosis of T1D, Mike has qualified for the Ironman World Championships, raced the Kona IM World Championships and won an Age-Group World title in off-road triathlon.
Professionally, Mike works for Lilly USA in their Diabetes Division supporting their product portfolio in skilled nursing and long term care facilities. When not at work or training, he loves to spend time with his dogs
