Team Novo Nordisk CEO Phil Southerland is happy that the team will be racing in Paris-Tours in October “One of Team Novo Nordisk’s major goals since the start of the season was to receive an invitation to Paris-Tours. Our committed staff and dedicated riders have already made 2015 our most successful season to date and we will come to Paris-Tours ready to fight for more results. On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank ASO for inviting us to race at Paris-Tours as it will allow us to reach even more people around the world and show what may be possible with diabetes."
Team Novo Nordisk General Manager Vassili Davidenko is also very excited for the team to return to Paris-Tours “Paris-Tours is one of the oldest bike races in the world. It has been one of our goals all season to participate in this iconic race. We want to thank the ASO for this opportunity. Our riders are ready to race and aim to add to the excitement that is Paris-Tours.”
Personally I can't wait for October 11th, to see the white jerseys of Team Novo Nordisk racing in France is just a preview of what is to come. Each day Team Novo Nordisk is working towards racing in the Tour de France, being able to race in Paris-Tours prepares the team for all of the pageantry that goes with a major European bike race. Each and everyday Team Novo Nordisk is proving that anything is possible with diabetes, on October 11th they will be showing the world that a person living with diabetes can be on the podium at Paris-Tours!!
