Thule Adventure Team - Multisport
The Thule Adventure Team, who Gococo has been sponsoring with products since 2011, is a multi-sport team that faces extreme challenges during their competitions. These extreme adventures can last anything from an entire day to 10-11 days in a row, and often involve a combination of several events. Activities can include cross-country running, mountain biking, canoeing, climbing, swimming, rollerblading and other exciting, challenging disciplines. Needless to say, multi-sport and adventure challenges are very demanding for all of the team members when it comes to endurance, teamwork and motivation. Team Thule wears both hats and socks from the Gococo range on their adventures. The team's current favourites are Compression, Compression Sleeves, Outdoor Sport and Light Sport. In 2011, the team won the Adventure Racing World Championship, which is a fantastic achievement. Read more about the Thule Adventure Team and their plans on the team website!
Matilda Rapaport - Freeskiing
Born and raised in Stockholm Matilda started skiing in one of the local ski clubs as a kid. At age 20 she changed her racing skis into freeskiing ones and she hasn't looked back ever since. Matilda lives in Engelberg, Switzerland, but travels the world in search for the white gold. This year she hopes to qualify for the Freeride World Tour and to ski in Japan for the first time. She is described as a technical and aggressive skier and she loves challenges, both on and off the mountains. When she is not skiing she likes to go running, biking or hiking in the mountains. Out of Gococos socks her favourites are Compression Calf Sleeve and Light Sport Kit and the Compression socks. Follow her blog and web page here!.
The team's favorite sock is undoubtedly the Compression Superior and Compression styles, which protects the legs from bumps and bruises when sailing. The Compression socks are also invaluable to the team during the long flights during the season when the girls are competing all around the world. Follow the girls on their facebook!
