The 104th edition of the Giro d'Italia starts Saturday May 8th in Turin. With 21 stages, 47,000 metres altitude, two time trials and four stages of more than 200 kilometers, it promises to be a very tough round, finishing Sunday May 30th in Milan.
A good night's sleep is therefore very important for Team DSM during this race. The riders change hotels no less than 20 times. By taking their own Auping mattresses, pillows and duvets they assure optimal rest and recovery. And it makes them feel at home after a tough stage. We wish the team the best of luck coming weeks at the Giro d'Italia.
“We are going to the Giro this year to compete for a good general classification. But we will also be looking for opportunities in the sprints as we try to compete for success in the stages that suit us best. Given our previous successes and good memories in Italy, we are very much looking forward to starting our Grand Tour season here.”, said Team DSM coach Matt Winston.
Since 2016, Auping mattresses have been traveling in special covers with the team during the Grand Tour. We wish Nikias Arndt (GER), Romain Bardet (FRA), Nico Denz (GER), Chris Hamilton (AUS), Jai Hindley (AUS), Max Kanter (GER), Nicholas Roche (IRL), Michael Storer (AUS) and all of Team DSM good luck for the coming weeks in the Giro d'Italia 2021.
