The recent news that Colombian great Luis Herrera has developed skin cancer, which he attributes to years of long days racing in high temperatures, has brought up a question I often ask myself: why doesn’t a sun cream brand sponsor a cycling team?
Correct me if I’m wrong but this hasn’t happened before. Surely it would do wonders in promoting skin health as well as boosting the brand’s sales. I realise there can be a lot of vanity in cycling, especially when it comes to tan lines, but health must come before looks.
There is an abundance of sun cream brands and you’d think one of them must have thought about sponsoring a team. Without mentioning any brands (I’m sure you can guess) I can easily picture a neat looking blue and yellow team kit. I wish Luis Herrera all the best in his recovery.
