Bardiani CSF Faizanè partners with Acqua Minerale San Benedetto

The Italian team sent me this update:

The partnership between the Italian Professional team and the Acqua Minerale San Benedetto Spa company is confirmed for the 2020 season. The company will provide all the team riders natural water, sparkling water, lemon and peach tea and Allegra Zero, all essential to tackle the integration of liquids during and after the races

On the hottest days, during the competitions, a professional rider could afford a water integration of 1 liter per hour. For this reason, for a team called to face about 200 days of racing all over the world and at all latitudes, joining an absolute quality partner is fundamental for a correct hydration and integration of liquids during and after the races.

For the 2020 season, the company Acqua Minerale San Benedetto S.p.a. has chosen to confirm its commitment alongside the Bardiani CSF Faizanè team, to support the 20 Italian riders of the team in each competition. The supply of soft drinks includes natural and sparkling water, but also lemon tea, peach tea and Allegra Zero, all essential for tackling the integration of liquids during and after the races.
