ALESSANDRO LUPINO STILL WITH SIDI, LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT 2018 - The Italian rider changes teams but sticks with his Sidi Crossfire 3 boots.

The partnership between Alessandro Lupino and Sidi continues. The strong Italian rider from Viterbo, born in 1991, will still be a part of the Sidi team of champions participating in the MXGP World Series in 2018.

Lupino ended the season on a high note, with the impressive performance at the MX of Nations, under the rain at Matterley Basin (United Kingdom), where he scored a fourth place and contributed to bringing Italy in to seventh place overall. Now the Italian rider is preparing for another exciting adventure in 2018. In fact, Lupino has accepted an offer to race for Team Gebben Van Venrooy Kawasaki Racing, a Belgian team that is striving to carve out an important role on the international scene. The team has announced its goal of remaining constantly in the Top15 in every grand prix race.

Lupino may be changing teams, but certainly not his boots. In fact, as always he will be competing in the 2018 season in his Crossfire 3, the top models in the Sidi off-road collection which have rightfully earned their place as the number one boots in the world for motocross. Lupino paid a recent visit to the Sidi headquarters in Maser (Treviso). It was the perfect occasion to work out the finer details in view of the new adventure that awaits him in 2018. Lupino thanked the Sidi staff with the gift of number plates “celebrating” the three consecutive Italian MX titles he has won: 2015, 2016 and 2017.
