Phil Southerland in Georgia

Phil Southerland thought he would be dead by now. Instead, his achievements in cycling are an inspiration to millions of others who live with diabetes. Diagnosed as a child with type 1, simply surviving was the original plan, but getting out and riding became his life. Being part of a team of diabetic riders that won the Race Across America was the springboard to Phil putting together a group of pros who all live and compete with the condition - Team Novo Nordisk. We headed out on the bikes from Phil's Atlanta home into the Georgia countryside, where a local dog - and not low blood sugar - was the biggest risk we faced.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
