Team Novo Nordisk is an American global all-diabetes sports team of cyclists, triathletes and runners, spearheaded by the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team. The team’s mission is to inspire, educate and empower people affected by diabetes. The team's principal sponsor is Novo Nordisk, a Danish global healthcare company, and Colnago, a bicycle maker. Team Novo Nordisk is the first professional cycling team to be comprised completely of riders living with type 1 diabetes. All riders, including Javier Megias, Andrea Peron and Martijn Verschoor, and several of the team’s staff, including Phil Southerland and VP of Marketing Matt Vogel, are living with diabetes. In February 2015, Team Novo Nordisk earned its first-ever win with New Zealander Scott Ambrose taking stage 2 of Le Tour de Filipinas, and the team made its debut at Dubai Tour, earning two top ten entries at the prestigious race.
