Team Novo Nordisk had a memorable 2019 Spring, racing at the highest level in two key World Tour events: Milano San Remo and Tour of California. In both races the world’s first all-diabetes pro cycling team achieved unprecedented accomplishments, notably placing four riders in the breakaway at the Italian Monument and notching our first top 10 stage result in a World Tour race.
