Sidi Crossfire 2 boots share his World Championship title

Maser (Treviso), 26 August, 2013 - After an exhilarating season, the race for the World Championship title came to its conclusion at the Great Britain GP.  On the Matterley Basin racetrack in Winchester, with one race to go to the end of the world series, Antonio Cairoli captured his seventh World Championship Title, thus continuing his phenomenal ascent into the olympus of motocross legends.
We didn't even have to wait for the end of the world championship series. It was enough for the super champion to win in race1 to definitively clinch his seventh world championship title and get the party started with his family, his partner Jill, his team, KTM and all his fans and partners, including Sidi Sport, which has always stood out as one of his most enthusiastic suppporters.
In fact, wether deep down in the mud of racetracks around the world or on the top step of the podium, Tony Cairoli has always been able to count on the boots supplied to him by Sidi; Sidi Crossfire 2 boots, the number one footwear in the Sidi Sport collection for motocross and off-road, are also world champions in the 2013 MX1 along with Cairoli.
Tony Cairoli was born in Patti, Sicilyin 1985. This is his seventh world championship title in motocross: 2005 and 2007 in MX2 and 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 in MX1, the reigning class. And the buck doesn't stop here!  Now more than ever Tony has his sights set on Stefan Everts, another great name from the Sidi stables, the most victorious rider ever, who scored 10 world titles in his extraordinary career.
All the staff at Sidi Sport sends a giant hug to Tony Cairoli for this new, exciting victory, along with a special thanks for all the extraordinary thrills which only he can bring to the field, race after race and season after season.
Cairoli did great, but he wasn't alone! Completing Sidi Sport's success in Great Britain was the umpteenth victory by young Latvian Paul Jonass (KTM) who is following in Cairoli's footsteps by anticipating the EMX125 European Motocross Championship title by one race. Switzerland's Jeremy Seewer (Suzuki) also enjoyed victory in the EMX250 trial and remains in the competition for the title with one race to go until the end of the championship series. Not to mention the women's category, with a super strong Chiara Fontanesi (Yamaha), coming in first in race1 and third in race2, putting her in second place in the final classification for the Grand Prix and keeping her in the lead of the WMX world championship series rankings with only two races left  to go.
