For the first time since launching in late 2012, Team Novo Nordisk is adding a new rider to its professional roster from outside of its development pipeline. Team Novo Nordisk is proud to announce that Hungarian Peter Kusztor will join its 2019 roster. The Olympian was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and will bring depth and experience to the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team.
For GSG it’s not first stand to wear Peter as pro-ridere. he wore GSG clothing when he rode with UtensilNord-GSG-Ora24.eu team in 2013.
“Peter is a very experienced rider as an Olympian and former multi-national champion,” Team Novo Nordisk General Manager Vassili Davidenko explained. “That exposure and level of experience will bolster our overall performance in 2019, and we are all looking forward to welcoming him to the team.”
“Moving up to Team Novo Nordisk means that a very big and old dream of mine is finally coming true. While I fully believe I have the ability to race at this level, I’ve never had the chance to move up,” Kusztor said. “My primary goal for the 2019 season is to get to know Team Novo Nordisk and learn how to train and race with diabetes at this top level. Additionally, I recognize that I still have a lot to learn around racing at this level.”
