MOTOCROSS: SIDI TRIUMPHS AT THE TRENTINO GP - Sidi stands out. Tony Cairoli excels in the MXGP. Kiara Fontanesi wins the WMX.

The Easter weekend in motorsports brought Sidi colours great satisfaction. In round 5 of the Motocross World Series on the Pietramurata circuit for the Trentino GP, Sidi stood out as a major player along with its champions. As always, they were all wearing their Crossfire 3 boots, the top models in the Sidi off-road collection.

In the MXGP class, Tony Cairoli (Ktm) pulled off another legendary feat. Displaying top form starting from the qualifiers, Cairoli got off to a great start by capturing race1, leaving Tonus behind him in second place but especially getting the best of his number 1 adversary, Tim Gajser, who had to settle for third.

But it was in race2 that Cairoli accomplished a masterful move, prompting an explosion of excitement among the huge crowd present on the Trentino circuit. After falling in the very first strokes, Cairoli got back up and clocked times that were unapproachable for any rival, recovering position after position until he came up on Tim Gajser. The Slovenian won race2, with Cairoli coming in a close second; but this was not enough for Gajser, because final victory in the Trentino GP went to Cairoli. The Sicilian ace and eight-time World Champion himself admitted that Race2 had to have been one of the most impressive feats in his career. 

This was an important victory both for morale and for the World Series standings. In fact, Cairoli has managed to block Gajser’s advantage, and with his victory in Trentino he has reduced Gajser’s lead margin by two points; so now Gajser is only 18 points ahead. The two will meet again in the European GP on April 23rd.

And the satisfaction doesn’t stop there. Sidi was a major player among the men, but also shined in the women’s field. Kiara Fontanesi (Yamaha) has reclaimed her crown as Queen of Motocross. By coming in first in race1 and second in race2, Kiara triumphed the WMX Trentino GP, which is the second event in the 2017 women’s motocross season. New Zealand’s Duncan is currently in the lead of the general classification for the World Series’, but Kiara is very close behind with only a 5 point disadvantage. The Sidi Championess is seriously vying for her fifth iridescent title.
