Chris Froome 1st, Nairo Quintana 2nd and Joaquim Rodriguez 3rd.Yellow Sidi Wire shoes for Chris Froome.

Maser (Treviso), 22 July, 2013 – Christopher Froome is the king of the 100th edition of the Tour de France. It was a truly extraordinary Grande Boucle for Sidi Sport. After the conclusive showcase on the Champs Elysées in Paris, yellow jersey Chris Froome was accompanied on  the final podium by Colombian Nairo Quintana (Movistar), second, and Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), third, all three of them wearing Sidi Wire shoes on their feet. In Paris Chris Froome’s Sidi Wires were yellow (photo attached).
The champions from the Sidi Sport stables were headliners for all three weeks of the Tour, on all the terrain it covered, from the great climbs to the tests against time and in the final sprints. There were no less than 7 stage successes scored by Sidi. Three stages were clinched by Froome while Nairo Quintana, Peter Sagan and Tony Martin won a stage each, as did Matteo Trentin, who carriedItaly to victory on the roads of the Tour after a three year dry spell.
In addition to all this, thanks to its exceptional champions Sidi achieved the difficult task of donning all 4 jerseys of the classifications, for practically the entire duration of the Tour de France. It was an extraordinary, all-Sidi poker hand. Besides Chris Froome’s yellow jersey, Sidi in fact also clinched the green jersey for the points’ classification with Peter Sagan (from the Sidi Cannondale Pro Cycling juggernaut), the white jersey that distinguishes the best young rider and the polka dot jersey for the best climber, perhaps the one most beloved by the French, both with the formidable Nairo Quintana
