The cooling vests used at the Tour of GA apparently aren’t powerful enough for the European races, so team Slipstream Chopotle is breaking out their secret weapon at this years Giro de Italia: Ice vests.
“Then Lim pulled out his secret weapon: white vests filled with ice that riders donned to keep their core temperature low and allow the legs to warm up without overcooking their body temperature.
“We warmed up with ice vests, which are not fun to warm up with,” Vande Velde said. “Whether or not that was the finishing touch, that just shows that we’ve done everything in our power to do our best today.”
I’m holding out for a cappuccino vest.
