QM Sports Care to provide Tinkoff with full range of sports care products

Tinkoff is glad to announce its partnership with QM Sports Care, the Belgium-based producer of 100% natural sports care and injury products. In 2016, Tinkoff’s soigneurs will use some of the market’s best massage and recovery oils and creams to rub the rider muscles while the riders will benefit from a full range of anti-friction, pro-race chamois, energizing and foot creams as well as bath and shower gels.

Massage is a key and essential part of the daily routine of top professional cyclists, especially during stage races and training camps. After a day of grueling effort that takes its toll on the rider’s muscles, massages give the legs the best chance possible of being able to ride hard again the next day. As a result, the selection of the best oils and creams that the soigneurs will use to glide their hands on the muscles of the riders is of the utmost importance.

After a thorough selection process, Tinkoff found in QM Sports Care, the ideal partner that wouldn’t only provide the best, all-natural oils and creams but that would also be able to offer a wide range of products for the riders as well.

The entire line of QM Sports Care products is based on entirely natural ingredients, a fact the eliminates the risk of allergic reactions. All products are created entirely by hand and only the finest ingredients are selected: essential and absolute oils from flowers, seeds, fruit peel, roots, grasses, trees and leaves are combined with cold-pressed and organic macerated oils. Oils from organically grown plants are used wherever possible.


“We’re delighted to work with QM and its fantastic range of sports care products – massage and recovery oils, anti-friction creams, among many others”, commented Technical Director of Tinkoff. “All ingredients of QM products are 100% natural which are preventive against allergic reactions. Today the difference is made through small details and marginal gains combined together; QM makes part of that process.”

Commenting on the partnership, Johan Van Steendam, CEO of QM Sports Care stated, “Tinkoff is one of the world’s top cycling teams and that makes us, obviously, extremely happy to be trusted by them. I am pleased that great riders such as Alberto Contador, Peter Sagan and Rafal Majka, among others, will be treated with my creams and oils. Our goal is to be the best in our business, so it is only logical we associated ourselves with the best in the sport of cycling”.
