- Acque Minerali d’Italia and its brand Sangemini are well-known not only in Italy but also around Europe. This water made the name in the world of sports and for Astana Pro Team it is a big pleasure to start collaborating with this company. Water is one of key components in cycling, since the rider’s hydration both inside and after the race is a basic. In Sangemini we found a well-balanced water rich in microelements and minerals, which will help our riders to be always in top condition, - expressed Alexandr Vinokurov, general manager of Astana Pro Team.
Sangemini is a water, born in the valleys of Italian region Central Umbria, on the slopes of Monti Martani in Apennines. The water is rich in calcium and bicarbonates as well as in magnesium, potassium and fluorine and is poor in sodium. This water helps to support all vital functions in the human organism as well as provide a great hydration support to the athletes: the higher amounts of bicarbonates and lower amounts of sodium produce a buffer effect to the lactic acid in the muscles of the athletes, helping to raise the threshold of resistance to fatigue during and after physical efforts.
- Our brand Sangemini is happy to start collaboration with Astana Pro Team here at such important event as Giro d’Italia 2018. For Sangemini this new partnerships is an additional opportunity to emphasize the relationship our water has with the sports thanks to its unique properties and distinctive features that make it a real ally for all athletes, professionals and non-professionals, - said Carlo Pessina, managing director of Acque Minerali d’Italia.
