Vortice boots for the Italian rider

Maser (Treviso), 10 December, 2013 – Here’s a guy as determined and aggressive on the track as he is friendly, down-to-earth and polite once he’s off his motorcycle. This is Andrea Dovizioso, the moto GP riders who rides for the official Ducati team. The ace from Romagna, born in 1986, took advantage of a break from his duties on the track and came to pay a visit to Dino Signori and the entire Sidi staff at the central headquarters in Maser (Treviso). Sidi Vortice boots, the top-of-the -line models in the Sidi Sport collection for speed and track racing, have been there on the raceway with Dovi since 2012.
Whether we’re welcoming riders or cyclists, company visits by Sidi champions are always a great chance to greet the athletes but also to show them around so they can get a closer look at the design and development that goes into the products that accompany them in the race and in all their extraordinary enterprises.Sidi boots have been with me in the last two seasons - explains Andrea Dovizioso.- I really like my Vortice boots; they are boots with a lot of outstanding features; but one of the characteristics I most appreciate has definitely got to be the protections. Having your feet enveloped and protected is an essential aspect for us riders. I also really appreciate the aesthetics. I have to thank the Sidi staff; they always try to meet my demands and they have supplied me with a personalised Vortice featuring custom graphics, with my number and the colours of my motorcycle. I would be hard pressed  to ask for anything more, now it is up to me to repay Sidi’s faith with some results on the track and this is what I hope to do in 2014, counting on the support of my motorbike.
I’ve experienced cycling first hand in my own background as a rider, while I’ve always enjoyed motorcycling from the outside, through the thrills provided by our riders -
says Dino Signori, founder and owner of Sidi Sport. - I’ve always kept a close eye on the races of our champions and I have to say that in particular Andrea is a guy I really like, he has character, he’s bright and clever and he always pays close attention to the details on his boots. It’s great to work with him. He is also a big fan of cycling; he told me he works out a lot on his bike and this makes me very happy.
