Maser (Treviso), 25 March, 2013 – Sunday, March 24th brought tremendous satisfaction to the Sidi colours. From the North came the victory by Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) in a classic as important as the Gent-Wevelgem, which was made even harder this year by some really lousy weather conditions.

On the second place of the podium his teammate Damiano Cunego.It was a Coppi & Bartali where Sidi and its athletes clinched innumerable wins, stage after stage. In addition to Sidi there was the satisfaction of winning the green jersey of the best climber, sponsored by Sidi, with Alessandro Mazzi (Utensilnord
Sagan and Ulissi are two young guys with fantastic talent that share something in common in their success: their Sidi Wire shoes, the top-of-the-line models in the Sidi Sport on-road collection. Cannondale Pro Cycling and Lampre-Merida, the two Italian formations on the World Tour circuit, are both completely branded Sidi Sport. This important partnership has already brought some remarkable results for the start of the season.
But for Sidi the satisfaction doesn’t end here. In fact, in the weekend that just wrapped up Sidi figured as a major player on roads all overEurope. From France and the Criterium International where Sidi scored another double with the pair from Team Sky, Chris Froome and Richie Porte, who came in first and second respectively in the final classification, to Spain at the Volta a Catalunya where Sidi made it to the final podium with Purito Rodriguez (Katusha), second, and Michele Scarponi, Lampre-Merida again, third.
