All the Sidi medals from the mountain bike World Championships

Maser (Treviso), 11 September, 2012 – The mountain bike World Championships in Saalfelden-Leogang, Austria have brought tremendous satisfaction to the Sidi Sport colours. Our greatest joy came from the men’s Elite class where Sidi Sport clinched the world champion jersey thanks to a splendid victory by Switzerland’s Nino Schurter, already World Champion in Canberra 2009 and winner of this year’s World Cup. In Austria Nino recaptured gold after the silver medal he won at the London Olympics earlier this year. It was not so much payback for the Swiss ace as it was just more gratification, since an Olympic medal is also a very prestigious prize. 
Rounding out Sidi’s success we find another two medals won in the Under 23 category with Czech Ondrej Cink, who took home the gold, and Italian Daniele Braidot, who won bronze. These two young riders will definitely be ones to watch in the future.
Sidi Sport could also celebrate the gold medal captured by the Italian National team in the team relay, where four athletes from different categories compete: one Junior, one Under, one Elite and one Woman. The Under 23 Luca Braidot, Daniele’s twin brother who also wears Sidi Sport shoes, was the last man in the medley that carried the blue-jersey Italians to victory and the team World Championship title. The Braidot twins Luca and Daniele are a new force for Sidi Sport as they forge ahead in the world of cycling with this young, entirely Sidi Sport-branded pair of attackers.
