daveThis week the riders from Team NovoNordisk are competing in the Tour of Hainan. We have an exclusive interview with Dutch rider, Martijn Verschoor, regarding what he likes to eat before a race and how he maximizes his potential. Martijn’s regimen must be working because he has had 2 top 10 finishes in the UCI race. Check out his Exclusive Interview.

Well the same mess up of directions can occur with insulin in the most unbelievable ways. This week our diabetes disaster avoided looks at what happens when the box is in the wrong place — see if you can figure out what went wrong.
