TULSA, Oklahoma -- One the teams hoping to race to victory in "Tulsa Tough" is Team Jelly Belly. Before gearing up for the races, some of the riders spent Friday morning visiting sick children at Saint Francis Hospital, the title sponsor of this year's race.
It's a chance for racers to connect to the community and brighten the day of some kids on the mend.
"A lot of these people – kids - you know, hope to be able to grow up and race their bikes or ride a bike, and it just makes you look at life and kind of realize what you have," said Sean Mazich, pro cyclist for Team Jelly Belly.
The competitors brought their bikes with them, appropriately decked out in jelly bellies.
