    Unless one more has abandoned since Stage 3, there are still five riders on the race, per their Twitter feeds:

    “Southerland was listed as being disqualified from Stage 3 for holding onto a vehicle. But race officials have since reinstated him. #atoc

    Team Type 1 will start Stage 4 with five riders: Phil Southerland, Fabio Calabria, Matt Wilson, Chris Jones and Valeriy Kobzarenko. #atoc
    17 minutes ago from web”

    Southerland had “lanterne rouge” (dead-last) honors going into Stage 3, and Calabria was right in front of him. Both our T1 riders are still in the race.
    Adalpe abandoned at Stage 2 due to illness. Lill abandoned yesterday due to knee pain. MacGregor had a crash which ended him up in the hospital (fortunately only minor injuries).
    I’ve been TiVo’ing the day’s stage (on Versus TV)

    Yes Team type 1 is doing well and you are correct that is team Type 1 in the green, white and purple. The guy who is in front though is not Levi Leipheimer it is another rider from team Rabobank. Leipheimer ride for team Astana which has a teal, yellow and white jersey.

    I am glad your are featuring cycling on your blog it does wonders for the BG levels.

    Thank you for drawing attention to this. I will be watching Stage 7 in Pasadena on Saturday from the sidelines but had no idea about this team. My daughter is type 1 and needs all the positive, awe-inspiring role models she can get.

    Thank you.
