RockTape and Garmin-Cervélo Team Up for 2011
(March 17, 2011 – Los Gatos, CA) RockTape today announced a strategic supply
agreement with Slipstream Sports and the 2011 Garmin-Cervélo Professional
Cycling Team to develop and supply custom designed Rocktape in the team’s
trademark argyle pattern. The partnership will make Rocktape the Official

for making kinesiology tape capable of withstanding extreme competition and
conditions is exactly what our doctors and athletes need. And we’re equally
psyched that Rocktape has developed a tape in our team colors.”
The Team will also utilize RockTape’s PowerTaping method to increase
athletic performance by reinforcing proper form through proprioceptive
feedback, which has been an area of collaboration between Dr. Kevin
Riecklin, team chiropractor for Garmin- Cervélo and Dr. Steve Capobianco, VP
of Medical Operations for Rocktape.

said Dr. Kevin Riechlin, “Their innovative approach to taping is a huge
benefit to our atheltes.”
“Team Garmin- Cervélo is simply the best pro cycling team in the world right
