The Team Sunweb cyclists sleep an average of 8 to 10 hours, depending on the intensity of the training. Recovery is an important part of the race; if you don’t recover well, then it gets in the way of good performance. We’re aware of this at Auping, so as the Team Sunweb partner, we sponsored the cyclists with mattresses to help them rest well day and night.
The team chose the Cresto mattress, in different firmnesses. Søren Kragh Andersen: “I like a firm mattress, but it shouldn’t be too firm; otherwise, you won’t get the support you need. That’s why I chose a Cresto soft.”
These mattresses go with the team on the major tours, like the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, and Vuelta. The crew ensures that the hotel rooms are equipped with the cyclists’ mattresses.
Andersen: “Sleeping and resting is very important, so we are very happy that Auping does this.”
