As a diabetic and as a cyclist I got chills when I read this. I will start with the diabetes side of things, a move like this is what I have been waiting for. This shines an amazing light on people living with diabetes, I have always wanted diabetes to get the attention it deserves and today that has happened. People living with diabetes are not overweight and contrary to what people think we do not deserve this disease because we ate to much sugar. Diabetics are like anyone else, we just have to watch our diet and take a shot or have an insulin pump. After years of living in fear, people living with diabetes are a force to be reckon with, we now control our disease, our disease does not control us. Seeing team Novo Nordisk also made my day. I do not receive any money from Novo Nordisk for the words that I write so what follows are my true feelings. I have done a lot of work with the New England Novo Nordisk team and I have never been more impressed with a drug company. Novo Nordisk does everything they can to make sure every patient they interact with understands what medication they are taking and how it will effect them. Novo Nordisk has the best workers, I look forward to events that Novo Nordisk will be at. I love to sit with the workers and talk sports, life and finally diabetes. Novo Nordisk is amazing, I don't know how else I can put it.
As a cyclist I feel that team Novo Nordisk will change how the average fan looks at cycling. Team Novo Nordisk will fix the mess that Lance Armstrong has made, cycling is now frowned upon when talked about between normal sports fans. The normal fan sees cyclists as druggies and people that wear weird uniforms. It will not happen overnight but Team Novo Nordisk will change the normal fans perception of cycling. I will go out on a limb and say that by 2030 a person living with diabetes will win the prestigious Tour de France. When that happens I WILL BE IN FRANCE as a spectator and loving every second of it!!!
