(Bend, OR – August 1, 2009)   ROCKTAPE, the recently-introduced performance tape designed to help endurance athletes manage fatigue, was worn by over 50 cyclists competing at the Cascade Classic and USA Cycling’s Junior, U23 and Elite National Championships in Bend, Oregon this past week.

Capitalizing on the recent success at USA Cycling’s Junior Track Nationals, Rocktape has become the cycling community’s preferred choice for endurance tape. “ROCKTAPE is designed to promote better blood flow, lymph drainage and lactic acid removal and reduces muscle vibration, all of which combine to help athletes manage fatigue,” said Greg van den Dries, CEO of ROCKTAPE. “Our Power Taping Protocol enhances performance via specialized skin stimulation, and the protocol definitely had the intended effect for the athletes. With the unusually high temperatures in Bend this past week, the cyclists needed extra help managing fatigue, and Rocktape provided that extra boost.”
