SUCH EXCITEMENT! SUPER CAIROLI AT ASSEN! - The battle for the World Title isn’t over yet.

The great Tony Cairoli is back! And the results speak for themselves. As proof of his current top form after a beginning of the season that started entirely uphill, Tony Cairoli (Ktm) followed up his lovely victory in the Swiss GP by coming in second, right behind Belgium’s Desalle, in the DutchGP of MXGP that took place on Sunday on the artificial racetrack built within the Assen speedway. After the 4th place in race1 Cairoli won with a great performance the race2. And another Sidi rider graced the third podium of this race; Holland’s Glenn Coldenhoff (Ktm), who put in a fine performance to come in third in both race1 and race2.

With two races to go to the finish, and 100 points still available, the Sicilian rider hopes to make an amazing comeback. From here to the end it will be a compelling duel between Cairoli and Gajser, with Germany’s Nagl out of the running at this point. As always, as he vies for what could be his 9th World Title, Tony Cairoli can count on his ever faithful Crossfire2 boots, the number one models in Sidi Sport’s off-road collection, which are unbeatable on any terrain and in any conditions. It’s going to be a compelling and exciting season finale, definitely one to watch.

In the MX2 class, Switzerland’s Jeremy Seewer (Suzuki) had a day that could best be forgotten. Up until now he had been having a brilliant season, which consistently saw him as a major figure on the podium. Nonetheless, at Assen American Thomas Covington (Husqvarna) fortunately managed to keep the Sidi colours waving high by winning race1. 

And this year’s WMX adventure came to a close right here at Assen. Among the women Livia Lancelot took home the title; but Sidi can celebrate anyway with a prime second place in the final World class rankings from Holland’s Nancy Van de Ven (Yamaha). Van de Ven closed out the season by winning race2 at Assen. Meanwhile, after 4 consecutive titles, this year the other Sidi star, Kiara Fontanesi (Honda), had to cede her crown of motocross Queen to Lancelot after finishing race1 in second place on Saturday.
