Bill's Story

I'm a 38 yr old competitive cyclist from Scottsdale, Az. I started mountain biking 12 yrs ago in the desert and mountains around Arizona. Started road cycling 4 years ago. I have competed in many events, including 24 hour mountain bike races, multi-day stage races at high altitudes, and 100 mi. + road races.

I was diagnosed in Feb. 2008 with celiac disease, after tests showed I had low bone density, iron and hematocrit.

I'm part of the Athletes for Awareness campaign and you'll hear plenty more from me about how celiac disease has changed my life.
