The short video on YouTube features Carr, a visually-impaired rider who participated in World T.E.A.M. Sports’ June, 2014 CanAm Veterans’ Challenge. Carr also has participated in other events from World T.E.A.M. Sports, including the annual Face of America ride from the Pentagon to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and the 2013 Adventure Team Challenge in western Colorado.

Despite his visual disability, Carr remains very active in outdoor sports, including cycling and water sports. He is interested in participating in the next cross-country Sea to Shining Sea ride from World T.E.A.M. Sports, tentatively scheduled for 2016 or 2017.

“I have participated in a couple of multi-day century rides since the 2014 CanAm and am preparing for winter indoor training,” reports Carr, who is spending part of the winter in Florida. Carr also intends to participate in the April 24-26 Face of America ride, from the Pentagon to Gettysburg, hosted by World T.E.A.M. Sports.
