Dovi to wear Sidi Vortice boots as he pursues a new adventure with Ducati

Maser (Treviso), 23 November, 2012 - Sidi Sport will continue supporting Andrea Dovizioso on his  Moto GP adventure. In fact, the Italian rider has renewed his deal with Sidi Sport for another year. As always, he will continue sporting his Sidi Vortice boots, the number one footwear for speed and track from the Sidi-branded collection.
2012 was an important year for Dovi, who was riding for team Tech 3 Yamaha together with Cal Crutchlow, another Sidi champion. He made it to the third step on the podium six times (Catalonia, Holland, Germany, Italy, Indianapolis and Aragon) and closed out the season in fourth place in the overall World rankings with 218 points.
In 2013 Andrea Dovizioso will be in for another important test. He’s turning a new page, with the will and determination to grow even further. In fact, his official Ducati team motorcycle is waiting for him. He will be riding for Ducati along with American Nicky Hayden.
“The 2012 season gave me some fantastic gratifications,” explained Andrea Dovizioso during his visit to the Sidi stand at the EICMA fair in Milan, where he was literally overwhelmed by fans vying for his picture and autograph. “Now this move to Ducati opens a new, important chapter in my career. After the fist tests in Valencia I can say I’m happy with the instant rapport I felt with the new team, and the feeling I had with the bike, both on dry and wet surfaces. It’s always a big change to get on a new motorcycle and it takes time to get to know and understand the machine. However, on my bike I can always count on my Sidi Vortice boots. Boots are an essential accessory, they represent the point where the rider becomes one with his motorcycle. My Vortice boots mean a lot to me; not only are they custom made to fit me, they have been personalised with my initials A.D., printed on the leather of the boot, and they feature special graphics. I’d like to thank Sidi sport for their faith in me and the support they’ve shown me throughout the years. I hope to continue our enterprises and reciprocate by giving it my all on the track to obtain results which I hope will get better and better.”
An Italian rider, an Italian motorcycle and Italian boots make up a winning combination marked by the Italian green, white and red flag, which Sidi sport hopes will bring good luck to Andrea Dovizioso during his brilliant adventure in Moto GP.
