Benhamouda and Beadle hang on in In the footsteps of the Romans
03 September 2022
Team Novo Nordisk’s Bulgarian campaign continued today when the world’s first all-diabetes cycling team lined up in In the Footsteps of the Romans. Mehdi Benhamouda (29th) and Hamish Beadle (34th) made the most of stage one which was raced over 126 kilometers.
“It was a very windy day. We’re all fatigued from the Tour of Bulgaria and struggled from the start. I managed to make the first group after the start then it was super tough covering all the moves. When the important move went, I was just in the wrong position and that was it for the day, surviving for the finish. The wheels have fallen off a bit. It’s strange because I feel like I am getting stronger and am more fit but mentally I need to work on tactically following the right wheels. We have one more day of racing here tomorrow. Let’s see what it brings us.”
