Quentin Valognes Pays Forward the Inspiration to French Diabetes Group

06 April 2017

Le Mans, France –  At Circuit Cycliste Sarthe-Pays de la Loire, Team Novo Nordisk was honored to meet Superdiab, a French diabetes group who reached out after seeing an interview with Quentin Valognes in the local French media.

After stage 3 of Circuit Sarthe, approximately a dozen teens living with diabetes came by our race hotel to grab a souvenir bottle and musette bag and to chat with the TNN squad to find out what it’s like racing with diabetes.

“It’s great to see young people with diabetes,” Quentin said. “They’re exactly like I was at their age. I remember when I was 14, watching Javier Megias racing on TV. Now I’m racing alongside him, and three days ago he was my roommate!”

Thanks for the support, Superdiab, and keep racing to change diabetes!
