IN SWEDEN TONY CAIROLI TAKES ANOTHER STRIDE TOWARDS THE WORLD TITLE … - Sidi also a major player with Jeremy Seewer, first in MX2.

On the Uddevalla racetrack in Sweden, for round 16 of the season, Tony Cairoli and Sidi have taken another important step towards capturing the MXGP World Title. Cairoli didn’t make it past ninth place in race1 and seventh place in race2; however some bad luck slowed down his direct rival for the title. In fact, after closing out race1 in second place, in race2 Dutchman Jeffrey Herlings was forced to drop out due to mechanical problems. Therefore, with three races to go to the end (USA, Holland and France), Cairoli is in command with 631 points, followed by Herlings with 530 points. There are 101 points between them, and there are still 150 points in play. It’s going to be a thrilling final, with Herlings giving it his all as he attacks to recover lost ground, while Cairoli will ride with savvy as he tries to defend his position and manage his advantage to capture the 9th iridescent title in his career. As always, Tony Cairoli will be able to count on Sidi’s support; the Sicilian champion races with Crossfire 3 SRS boots, the number one boots in Sidi’s off-road collection.

Besides the battle to capture the MXGP World Title, Sweden also brought much more excitement to Sidi and to all fans of great motocross racing. In the MX2 class that came down to a matter of a hundredth of a second, American Thomas Covington (Husqvarna) was only sixteenth in race1; however, he came away victorious in race2, in front of Switzerland’s Jeremy Seewer (Suzuki), who took second place twice. Covington and Seewer also use the Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS. In any case, the Swiss rider dominated the final standings in the GP, gaining four points on Pauls Jonass, who was third in the GP. Here, too, with only three races to go to the end, Jonass is first in the rankings with 669 points and Seewer is second with 624. Sidi is riding towards victory in the MX2 World Title as well. We are ready and psyched for a grand finale!
