A few weeks ago, one of the most grueling events in all of sports came to its annual conclusion. The Tour de France spans the month of July and pits the world’s best cyclists in a test of speed and endurance. A typical day can mean 200 kilometers in the saddle, so it’s no surprise that aches, pains and injuries plague riders throughout the race’s three-week duration.

Armstrong added, “Sometimes we’d be so wrapped up in hot-pink tape that we’d look like dolls, a bunch of broken dolls.  But the tape worked, so we kept it, because it could fix things.”

One of the most important features of Kinesio Tape for the US Postal Team was that it provided them with support and stability without restricting their range of motion – crucial prerequisites for any competitive athletes.
