Katie will take part in the tour – riding the 2,100 km from Brussels to Barcelona in relay with a riding buddy. Asked about the Grand Tour, Katie answers: “I think the tour will be an excellent opportunity to raise awareness and advocate about diabetes and sports. I am a great believer in all benefits that come from sports; nothing beats a good physical activity session! The grand tour has a great potential to stimulate and motivate people to find out what loving sports is all about!”
