For anyone that follows Team Novo Nordisk knows that it is not a team, it is a family. Following numerous team members on social media I get jealous of anyone that works with or is a part of the team. The team is made up of athletes from all over the globe that act like they grew up together and are the closest of friends. For example one team member posted about wanting to have an omelette for dinner and another member of the team brought over hard boiled eggs, it sounds like something members of the high school basketball team I coach would do. At the same time though they are a family, that is just my assumption but I find it very hard to believe that members of the team don't have heart to heart conversations about diabetes. That is the common bond of the team/family and any future member knows about the struggles and joys that diabetes brings to the table. From high or low blood sugars during training rides or races anyone that cycles with diabetes has probably been there. When you are surrounded with almost twenty other athletes that have had the experiences it is tough not to be a family and learn from one another.
The future is very bright for Team Novo Nordisk and I know that anyone who attends the training camps will walk away with memories that will last a lifetime.
