TONY CAIROLI IS BACK! - The motocross phenomenon wins in Germany and reopens the World Series.

After the podium scored in Kegums, Latvia, victory arrived promptly, as promised, in the German GP on Sunday at the Teutschenthal racetrack. In the week or tests for the 2016 MXGP World Series Antonio Cairoli (Ktm) finally returned to winning, taking his rightful place on the highest step of the podium. The Sicilian phenomenon has been doggedly pursuing success since last May 31st. Now he’s won both rounds of races to win the Grand Prix and scored the 75th success of his brilliant career. It’s an important achievement that has boosted confidence and morale for the rest of the season, but more importantly it has re-launched Tony onto the World scene. Now Cairoli is third in the General Classification (with 263 points) behind the actual leader Tim Gajser (299 points) and Romain Febvre, who is second (with 291 points). The World Series is still wide open and has a long way to go; now is the time to dream and to dare. For Tony Cairoli and Sidi Sport anything is possible.

Good news for Sidi is also coming from the MX2 series. Switzerland’s Jeremy Seewer (Suzuki) continues delivering consistent results. He got a fourth place in race1 and second place in race2 to close out the Grand Prix in third place, and he is still second in the World rankings, behind the formidable Jeffrey Herlings. Seewer had a great race in race2, with Herlings managing to pass him only halfway through the second-to-last lap. Britain’s Max Anstie (Husqvarna) also did well, taking third in race1 and fifth in race2 to close out fourth in the final classification for the Grand Prix.

In the WMX women’s field, 2016 has not been a great year for the Queen of motocross. Unfortunately, World Champion Kiara Fontanesi has been plagued by a series of falls and plenty of bad luck. However, the Sidi colours were held high by the excellent Dutch rider Nancy Van De Ven, who took second in race1 and third in race2 to close out the GP in third place. Van De Ven is also second in the World Series rankings, just 11 points behind the leader, Livia Lancelot.

The extraordinary men and women in the greater Sidi Sport motocross family can rely on Sidi Crossfire 2 boots, the number one footwear for off-road which are unbeatable on any terrain and in any weather conditions, even in the most extreme situations.
