Team Novo Nordisk | 2017 Talent ID Camp #1

2017 Talent ID Camp #1

03 July 2017

Last week, Team Novo Nordisk held its first Talent ID Camp of 2017. Twenty-seven young, all-diabetes cyclists from 13 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.
