We're thrilled to have athlete, speaker and coach @justinmorrismdog joining us at #typeonesummit in #NSW to talk to our teens program group about his achievements living with #type1diabetes 🚵🏼 Bikes have been a part of Justin's life since childhood. However, at the age of 10 he was diagnosed with #t1d 💉
This created a few more challenges, but nothing was going to stop him from pursuing what he loves - riding his bike. 🚲 By the age of 23, Justin had spent 10 years racing bikes both in road and MTB. These years of training led him to his first professional road racing contract.
Justin spent 5 years as a professional in road cycling travelling the world racing his bike. Having transitioned from a pro career to complete his university studies Justin now fuels his competitive streak with mountain biking. Having finished many stage races and XCM races on the MTB including podium finishes at The Crocodile Trophy, 1st place in the 2016 Simpson Desert Bike Challenge and 4th place in this year's Pioneer in New Zealand.
Want to hear more from Justin? There's still spots available in the program for 12-16 year olds at Type One Summit. 24 September. @novotel_parramatta
