SIDI MOTORSPORTS WEEKEND: ALL THE RESULTS - As always, Sidi Sport champions are formidable on the track and off road.

The weekend in motorsports that just wrapped up saw champions from the Sidi team as major players, both on the track and off-road.

Let’s start with motocross, where Sidi shined on the Saint Jean d’Argely racetrack in the French GP. The women delivered the best results. In fact, in the WMX, Nancy van de Ven (Yamaha) won the Grand Prix with a 1st place in race1 and a 2nd place in race2; for her this is the second victory of the season. Now the Dutch woman is second in the World Championship series, just 7 points behind the current leader, Livia Lancelot. Kiara Fontanesi (Honda) also performed well, proving she has the guts and pride it takes to make it to the third step on the podium. For the 4-time World Champion, this is her first podium in a season which is turning out to be particularly difficult. This result should build Kiara’s confidence and morale as she pursues the World Series, where she is currently in fifth place.

In the MX2 class, Switzerland’s Jeremy Seewer (Suzuki) is confirming his skills as a greatly consistent champion. 3rd in race1 and 4th in race2, in the end the Swiss made it to the third step on the podium, solidifying his position in second place in the overall rankings for the World Series, right behind the impressively strong Jeffrey Herlings. Britain’s Max Anstie (Husqvarna), also did well, coming in second in race 2.

In MXGP the day wasn’t as lucky for Tony Cairoli (Ktm), who couldn’t get any further than 4th place after coming in 3rd in race1 and 7th in race2, mostly because of two falls. Now Cairoli has slid to     -50 points from the leader, Tim Gajser. It won’t be an easy comeback, but with 8 World Titles under his belt, Tony Cairoli has shown us that nothing is impossible…especially for him. The next two rounds will be decisive for the World Series, with the British GP on June 19th, and the Italian GP in Mantua on June 26th.

Finally, let’s have a look at the young riders in the European Championships for the 125 class, where Sidi triumphed with Frenchman Stephen Rubini (Ktm), riding on his home turf racetrack to clinch both races and the final classification for the Grand Prix. In the overall standings he is now second, 13 points behind the leader.

As always, Sidi champions battle it out in the dust and mud, and shine on the podium in their Crossfire2 boots, the number one models in the Sidi Sport off road collection, which remain unbeatable on any terrain and in any weather conditions.

Let’s move on to the track, where in the Catalunya GP Alex Rins held on to his lead in the World Series classification after obtaining an important second place in the Moto2 race, right behind France’s Johann Zarco. It was a sad and difficult weekend for all the riders after their friend and colleague, Luis Salom, was killed in a terrible accident during the test rounds on Friday. “It wasn’t easy for any of us to race after what happened. I will always have fond memories of Luis. I learned a lot from him, first when we were team mates and then when we were rivals on the track. We are all going to miss him very much,” says Alex Rins.

Remaining at the Catalunya GP, in the top class of the MotoGP, Alvaro Bautista (Aprilia) put in a fine performance to come in eighth. Michele Pirro (Avintia Racing) was 15th. Sidi champions can rely on Sidi Vortice boots for their technology, design and comfort, which makes them the finest models in the Sidi Sport collection for speed on the track.
