Hi my name is Duane M. Garcia Jr the big number five three and I ride for TYPE1RACING aboard my 2006 YFZ450. This will be my second year racing for TYPE1RACING in our relentless pursuit for finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. The unique thing about TYPE1RACING is we not only race or ride but we try to educate and promote awareness to “you” the people on what type 1 diabetes is. Type 1 diabetes runs heavy on both sides of my family so it’s imperative for me to understand and recognize its symptoms. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you have any questions regarding type 1 diabetes. I want to thank all my family and friends along with TYPE1RACING and Mark Radford out at Kolby Offroad for supporting me.
