Peron earns second top 10 of Tour of Turkey

14 October 2023

The world’s first all-diabetes cycling outfit, Team Novo Nordisk continued its impressive run in the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey with another top 10 today.

General Manager, Vassili Davidenko:

“Today was another tough stage and Andrea showed his experience, and grabbed the opportunity by getting another top 10. Everyday the guys started believing more and more they are some of the stronger riders in the race. It’s great to see. Filippo did an incredible job to get Andrea into a good position which ended up being important as Andrea avoided the crash in the last corner thanks to good positioning.” 

We were racing on two continents today and got top ten in both races with Hamish finishing 4th in Japan. There’s one day of racing left in our season and we are still performing.”

Andrea Peron:

“Today was a really hard stage, it was so unpredictable with breakaways going and coming back constantly. I decided to stay calm, save energy because there was a good chance of everything coming back together. In the end one guy stayed away and we sprinted for second. The guys put me in a great position and I’m happy to finish the season on a high here.”
