MTB: SIDI ON TOP OF EUROPE! - Gold for Julien Absalon and bronze for Ondrej Cink.

The European Mountain Bike Championships hit the scene in Husqvarna, Sweden, bringing immense satisfaction to the Sidi Sport colours.

In the men’s Elite cross country division of the continental series Sidi Sport obtained two heavy medals. Gold for Frenchman Julien Absalon, who won the race crossing the finish line 1 minute and 41 seconds ahead of Switzerland’s Fabian Giger, who took the silver. Capturing the bronze medal with an excellent performance, another one of the Sidi team’s top riders, the Czech Ondrej Cink rounded out the podium.

For the immensely awesome Julien Absalon, twice Olympic champion in 2004 and in 2008, this is his fourth consecutive continental title. Now the French super champ will continue an already remarkable career by aiming for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

As always, the off-road champions from the Sidi Sport team battled in the dust and mud, then shined on the podium in their Sidi Drako Carbon Srs shoes, which once again have proven to be unbeatable on any terrain and in any weather.

Now the big names in mountain biking will meet up again in Albstadt, Germany, for the second test in the World Cup series.
