Hi everyone, I am Sam Brand, a Professional Cyclist living with type 1 diabetes. I race for Team Novo Nordisk, the world’s first all diabetic professional cycling team! To me the purpose of what I do goes beyond the wins and podiums; the result is also defined by the changes in the lives of my teammates and I, whilst showing what is possible with diabetes. I work every day in the hope of making one more person affected by diabetes, smile more, hope more and dream bigger. Diabetes doesn’t define me, but what I do with it does.
