Plenty of National road and time trial titles plus a fantastic European double in MTB

Maser (Treviso), 24 June, 2013 – The weekend that just wrapped up was one to remember for the colours of Sidi Sport. From the road to off-road, the number one riders were champions from the Sidi stables. In the National Championship races that took place on roads all over the world Sidi scored a number of victories.
Looking east to Slovakia, Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) confirmed himself as National Champion in the in line road race and Peter Velits (Omega Pharma) won the time trial title. In Poland Michal Kwiatkowski (Omega Pharma) is the new road champion and Maciej Bodnar (Cannondale Pro Cycling) took home the time trial title.
In the time trials in Germany the World Champion in this specialty, Tony Martin (Omega Pharma) had no rivals as he captured yet another national title. Other important successes in the race against the stopwatch also came from Northern Europe, with Brian Vandborg (Cannondale Pro Cycling) winning the title in Denmark and Gustav Larsson (Team IAM) coming in first in Sweden.
And let’s not forget the ladies, with successes by Dalia Muccioli (BePink) who became the new Italian ladies’ champion, winning the in line race at Cesenatico, by Patricia Schwager (Feren-Let’s Go Finland) who was first in Switzerland and by Svetlana Bubnenkova (Pratomagno Women) in Russian.
There were lots of important victories based on a common denominator: Sidi Wire shoes, the top-of-the-line footwear in the Sidi Sport collection for road cycling.
From the road to off-road, Sidi confirmed its role as a major player with a magical double obtained in the cross country European Championships in Berne. In the men’s Elite race the gold medal went to Julien Absalon and silver to Nino Schurter; just like in the World Cup, these two were consistently the ones to watch as they engaged in a head to head duel to the end, and as always both men were wearing Sidi Drako shoes, the finest gems in the Sidi mountain bike collection.
