Team Novo Nordisk and CycleOps Partner for the 2018 Season
Team Novo Nordisk, the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team, and Wisconsin-based indoor cycles and trainer manufacturer announced a partnership naming CycleOps as the official trainer for Team Novo Nordisk. CycleOps will supply the SuperMagneto trainer to the men’s professional and development teams for the 2018 season.

“We are excited to partner with CycleOps and include their high-end trainers as part of the team’s warm-up and cool-down sessions,” Team Novo Nordisk Senior Vice President of Athletics Vassili Davidenko said. “The SuperMagneto allows for four options that mimic a variety of outdoor scenarios from easy, flat recovery rides to demanding hill intervals. Their trainers help support our riders as they race around the world to inspire, educate and empower everyone affected by diabetes.”

Designed with nearly 20 years of experience working with athletes, coaches, and scientists, the SuperMagneto features a progressive magnetic resistance unit that provides a quiet and frictionless ride and a large flywheel to produce a road-like feel.

“The mission of Team Novo Nordisk is one we believe in, and one that we’re proud to support for another year,” Saris Marketing Director Heather Fortune said. “We’re happy to equip the team with CycleOps trainers to help them stay ready for whatever race conditions are thrown their way.”
