Team Novo Nordisk | 2016 Talent ID Camp 1

2016 Talent ID Camp #1

22 June 2016

Last week, Team Novo Nordisk held its first Talent ID Camp of 2016. Twenty young all-diabetes cyclists from 10 countries traveled to Athens, Georgia, to chase their dreams of being a pro cyclist and to find out if they have what it takes to ride with Team Novo Nordisk.

Throughout the week, campers got to train with members of the Team Novo Nordisk Development and Junior Teams and work with Team Novo Nordisk coaches and health care professionals to learn about sports and diabetes management. Learn more about Team Novo Nordisk Talent ID Camps here.
