Mitchelton-SCOTT to rest easy with LatexcoMon 4 Mar 2019
Australian WorldTour outfit Mitchelton-SCOTT has joined forces with Latexco, helping to ensure riders rest in comfort throughout the 2019 season.
Whilst success is experienced on the road, it’s no secret that sleep is one of, if not, the most important recovery tool for repeat performance, particularly during gruelling three-week Grand Tours.
With almost daily transfers and a wide variety of hotel conditions, Latexco’s mattress toppers and pillows will ensure more consistent sleeping conditions for Mitchelton-SCOTT riders.
Kevin Tabotta – Mitchelton-SCOTT Performance Manager:
“Cyclists endure some of the most inconsistent and varied competition and sleep environments of any elite athletes.
“The latex topper and pillows from Latexco will allow us to rectify this by transforming unpredictable hotel beds to a consistent feel to ensure adequate sleep for maximum performance.”
Katrien Dendievel – Latexco PR and Marketing Coordinator:
“We are very proud to announce that the ridersfrom the Mitchelton-SCOTT cycling team will sleep on our latex pulse toppers in the upcoming cycling season.
“Scientific tests have proven the positive impact of our latex topper: the athletes who slept on a latex topper during the tests slept on average 18 minutes longer per night and felt refreshed and energized when waking up.
“A lack of sleep – which is not uncommon among top athletes – adversely affects the physical and mental state of rider and increases the risk of injuries.
“We wish Mitchelton-SCOTT a fantastic 2019 cycling season and of course … a good night’s sleep!"
