Finca Duernas is an associate member of the Team DSM. It has been a hugely successful partnership when it comes to winning awards. Both the women's and men's teams were awarded medals at the most prestigious world events, winning the World Cup in Bergen, several stages of the Tour de France, first prize in the ‘Vuelta de España’ time trials (with Chris Froome) and as winners of the Giro d'Italia (with Tom Dumoulin). Here at Finca Duernas, we are thrilled to bits with the team and their motto ‘KEEP CHALLENGING’ is equally applicable to everything we do.
Duernas Oleum is the only fat used for the diet of these winning cyclists because it is a Finca a rich source of energy to recharge an athlete’s batteries as well as the main source of healthy energy for them. “Quite simply because it’s the only fat made up of 100% natural juice of olives. The polyphenols which exist in Duernas’ extra virgin olive oil help to reduce the oxidative process in general. This process accelerates particularly when they do strenuous sports”
For Emilio Sánchez Vicario, CEO of ASC, “nutrition is of crucial importance for us because it has a direct impact on the performance of our students. That is why we have chosen an extra virgin olive oil from Finca Duernas. This fresh olive juice contributes positively to the build up of the muscles, the care of their heart as well as it helps to recover faster after the strenuous effort of the athletes. This is part of the invisible training of our athletes. In the opinion of Sergi Bonillo, Nutritional Director of the Sanchez Casal Academy, We have chosen Finca Duernas not only because of the excellent nutritional values –which is right- but also because it makes their diet much more tasty; as per our nutritional guide, we always try to include attractive and appetizing meals”.
