Here is what Jurgen Van den Broeck, number 4 in the Tour de France 2012 has to say about his infrared sauna:

HM: Jurgen, what is the secret to becoming a good Tour de France rider?

JVDB: I would say it is recuperation. In the Tour de France, you wonder everyday how you will make it to the end. Every day is a race  in itself and the speed is much higher than in other stage races. At the finish you are exhausted but the next morning you need to have recovered. This is crucial, regardless of whether you are aiming for a stage win or the general classification. (more…)
