MOTOCROSS: ANOTHER GREAT WEEKEND FOR SIDI SPORT CHAMPIONS
Kiara Fontanesi fantastic, Ken De Dycker formidable and Tony Cairoli brave

Maser (TV), 17 June, 2013 – On the track at Maggiora (Novara) the MX and WMX circuses got together for the Italian GP and a great weekend of motocross racing. Sidi Sport was thus able to see all its stars together on the track and those that shine the brightest are clearly Tony Cairoli and Kiara Fontanesi, the two number one riders in world  class motocross.
It was a bit of an unlucky race for Tony Cairoli in MX1. In fact, in race1 the Sicilian slid to the ground twice, but he didn’t give up and he continued to get back in the game and give it his all to close out in fourth place. Heedless of a problem to his knee, Tony threw himself into the mix in race2 where he managed to clinch second place and thus close out the general classification of the Grand Prix in third place on the heels of his team mate De Dycker and winner Paulin. This good placement allowed him to take home more valuable points for the World Series rankings, in which he maintains a firm lead.
It was up to Ken De Dycker to keep the Sidi colors flying high. In fact, the Belgian definitely deserves a hand for the second place he obtained by taking second place in race1 and third place in race2. He has confirmed himself as another ace from the Sidi stables. 
On another front,  Kiara Fontanesi was fantastic. She completely lived up to expectations by riding a perfect race and obtaining her sixth consecutive win in as many World Series tests. This result has launched her even closer to a second World Championship title.
To celebrate the Italian race in the motocross World Series, Sidi Sport decided to dedicate special editions of its Sidi Crossfire2 boots to its champions: an all-orange version with the number 222 for Tony, to match his KTM steel steed; Kiara got green, white and red graphics enhanced with the championship rainbow colors and the number 8 that distinguishes her Yamaha; for Keeno it was grey/orange graphics with splashes of the Belgian flag. Three jewels produced by Sidi exclusively for its champions.
It was a great party for Sidi,  which was present for the entire weekend on the track in Maggiora with a stand where the large attending crowds were able to meet the champions from the Sidi stables for pictures and autographs and get an up-close look at the extraordinary Crossfire2 boots, the number one footwear for off road, as well as all the other products from the Sidi sport collection.
