TEMPUR® proudly sponsors DROPS women’s road cycling team.
TEMPUR® have provided, women’s road cycling team Drops Le Col with mattresses and pillows to suit all of the individual rider’s needs, whilst on the road for the 2021 season. This partnership demonstrates our commitment to supporting athletes and unites us within the cycling space in particular, also building on our successful relationship with track cyclist and Olympic medallist, Callum Skinner.
When providing the riders with mattresses and pillows of their choice, we were able to conduct a sleep study. The sleep study showed that riders woke up 40% less during the night* and they experienced a 25% increase in comfort.*
Two of our riders Alice and Joss had some particularly exciting results.
The findings of the sleep study show that Alice’s sleep comfort increased by 27%. Similarly, Joss fell asleep an impressive 69.7% faster, using TEMPUR® products.*
