Team Novo Nordisk 2018 Talent ID Camps

2018 Team Novo Nordisk Talent ID Camp

16 July 2018

Last week, Team Novo Nordisk held its 2018 Talent ID Camp. Twenty-six young, all-diabetes cyclists from 16 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 Team 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.
