Novo Nordisk was born out of a mission to truly put patients first,
supporting the 382 million people around the world living with
diabetes.* Since the beginning, we’ve continually looked for ways to
create programs that not only help those living with diabetes manage
their respective conditions – but to show them what’s possible when
you do. Team Novo Nordisk – the first all-diabetes professional
cycling team – came together through a partnership between Phil
Southerland and Novo Nordisk to inspire, educate and empower those
affected by diabetes.
Today, the larger team is comprised of nearly 100 athletes from over
20 countries – riding, running, and swimming in a race to change
diabetes. One of Team Novo Nordisk’s pro cyclists is Canadian -- Reid
McClure from Calgary, Alberta. Reid was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes
at the age of three. We had a moment to catch up with Reid about
cycling, life outside of racing, and what he’s learned from being part
of the team.
