    Team Novo Nordisk - Racing to Change Diabetes

    Team Novo Nordisk is a global all-diabetes sports team of cyclists spearheaded by the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team. The team’s mission is to inspire, educate and empower everyone affected by diabetes.

    Team Novo Nordisk is part of the Changing Diabetes® initiative, Novo Nordisk’s global commitment to improving conditions for the more than 437 million people living with diabetes today, and those at risk of developing diabetes.

    The Team Novo Nordisk goal

    When diagnosed with diabetes, many people think they will not be able to live life the way they had hoped. The Team Novo Nordisk athletes are people with diabetes who have a talent and a strong desire to not let their condition stop them from following their dreams and competing at the top level.

    The athletes work hard to manage their diabetes. Through their experiences and life stories they hope to inspire, educate and empower others by showing what may be possible.

    Team Novo Nordisk in action

    2018 marks the sixth season the all-diabetes men’s professional cycling team is racing on the International Cycling Union (UCI) Professional Continental Tour, which is taking them to numerous countries around the world in Europe, USA, the Middle East and Asia as they continue

    racing to change diabetes.

    The 2017 season saw Team Novo Nordisk earn 15 top 10 finishes including top five results at GP de Saguenay and the Finnish National Championship Road Race. Throughout the season, Team Novo Nordisk stepped on the podium for multiple jersey honors. Neo-pro sprinter Mehdi Benhamouda (FRA) wore the best young rider jersey at the Tour d’Azerbaidjan, Stephen Clancy (IRL) received the fan favorite jersey following the opening stage of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah and Fabio Calabria (AUS) earned the most aggressive rider jersey on the final stage of the Colorado Classic. 

    Off the bike, Team Novo Nordisk riders meet thousands of people every year who are inspired by their message and empowered by their actions at races spanning the globe. The team also engages regularly with its millions of fans on social media. 

    The road to Team Novo Nordisk: two journeys, one goal

    In December 2012, Novo Nordisk and Phil Southerland, co-founder and CEO of Team Novo Nordisk, partnered to create Team Novo Nordisk, based on a shared goal to inspire, educate and empower people around the world affected by diabetes.

    This unique partnership is the result of two inspirational journeys:

    • In 1982, at seven months old, Phil was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. His- mother was told he was unlikely to live past 25.Around the same time, Novo Nordisk - already a pioneer in the

    treatment of diabetes - marketed its first insulin that was identical to human insulin.

    • From an early age, Phil’s effective management of diabetes included riding his bike. At college he motivated friend and fellow cyclist with diabetes, Joe Eldridge, to improve his diabetes control in a similar way. This inspired Phil to spread diabetes awareness to a larger audience, and in 2005 he formed a cycling team that included athletes both with and without diabetes. In 2007, this team went on to win the 3,000-mile tag-team Race Across America.

    • In 2005 - the same year as Phil formed the team - Novo Nordisk launched the Changing Diabetes® programme, which aims to ensure better outcomes for more patients, by creating more opportunities to live well with diabetes.

    • As Phil travelled around the world, he witnessed the Novo Nordisk interest in supporting the diabetes community. This was an immediate shared goal, as was the desire to empower people with diabetes, and show that living with diabetes shouldn’t stop you from pursuing your dreams.

    • Based on these shared goals, Team Novo Nordisk was created in December 2012.

    In recent two years, our team has applied the spirit of reform to the development of cycling race. In 2017 Tour of Qinghai Lake, our rider Jonathan under the help of team members got the yellow jersey for eight consecutive stages which is the symbolic of race leader and finally won the championship. His performance represents that Chinese cycling team has made a breakthrough in the history of that race. In 2018, we have participated in some professional races and our new riders have accumulated precious experience in the meanwhile. In 2018 Tour of Qinghai Lake, our young rider Li Zisen got the blue jersey for the previous two stages which stands for the best Asia athlete.

  • WIL

    Our sport project was born in 2009 when Angelo Citracca, team manager of the team with the headquarters on the top of San Baronto hill, decided to bring one of the most winning Under 23 team in the category Professional. Eight long years full of joy and pain but with many emotions, same feelings that brought back in the peloton two historical italian brands, Wilier Triestina and Selle Italia, that became leaders in the world.

    112 years of history for Wilier Triestina, 121 for Selle Italia, two anniversaries to don’t forget as unforgettable was our participation to the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia with the team involved for the 8th time in these last 9 years to show the importance of a project that every year works with the young talents of italian and international cycling.

    The results are getting better year after year and that’s how the team managed to win for two times in the last four years the Italian Cup achieving most victories than any other italian team in the last 48 months.

    In 2018 we will face new challenges with a roster that will be leaded by two symbolic men of the italian cycling, Filippo Pozzato and Jakub Mareczko.
