RockTape, the world’s strongest brand of kinesiology tape, announced today it will be the kinesiology tape sponsor of Team Garmin-Sharp, the top American cycling team dedicated to ethical sport and developing the next generation of cycling champions, for the 4th year in a row. RockTape will provide the team with kinesiology tape for the entire 2014 season.
RockTape is used in endurance sports throughout the world to treat common muscle injuries throughout the body, like shin splints and knee and quad, back and neck strain. RockTape is also used for performance to strengthen and support weak muscles prone to injury.
When applied to the skin, RockTape restores the muscle by promoting blood flow to the injured area. It is thin, light, supportive and comfortable to wear for up to 5 days, and is perfect for treating Achilles tendons, plantar fasciitis, lower back problems, shoulders, calves and more.
“Our roster includes some of the most talented riders in the world,” said Kevin Reichlin, Team Chiropracter, Team Garmin-Sharp. “We use RockTape throughout the season – during training and races across the globe – to treat injuries and help prevent and alleviate muscle pain, soreness and fatigue so that our riders can focus on what they do best – racing.”
“Training and racing in pro-cycling is rigorous, and can put a great deal of strain on the body,” said Andrew Talansky. “We use RockTape to help prevent and recover from injury while training and racing, all year long.”
“Being selected to support athletes in a sport that I have competed in means a great deal to me,” said RockTape CEO, Greg van den Dries. “I know the sacrifice it takes to train and applaud this team for their endurance. RockTape is a great product that is up to the task and physical demands of this sport, and I’m thrilled Slipstream Sports has chosen RockTape once again, as an official sponsor and product they use with their team.”
