SIDI CAN SMILE IN MOTOCROSS… - Cairoli reopens the World Series at Ottobiano. Sidi also victorious in MX2 and WMX.

Sidi came away smiling from the GP di Lombardia. This Italian stage in the motocross World Series brought joy and satisfaction to riders from team Sidi.
At Ottobiano Tony Cairoli could do no wrong and, being the champion that he is, he achieved his objective. Cairoli won the Grand Prix, and he did so in the best possible way, with a magic double, winning race1 first and then triumphing in race2 as well. With the World Series leader Jeffrey Herlings out of the race due to a fractured clavicle, the Sicilian rider for KTM didn’t miss the chance to recover important points to move up in the iridescent rankings. With this significant victory Cairoli earned 50 points, passing from -62 to -12 from the Dutch pilot. The World Series has reopened, and Tony Cairoli can continue his quest for a 10th World title. The next two races will be overseas in Indonesia, on July 1st and 8th.

Sidi also did great in the MX2, where the talented Spanish rider Jorge Prado clinched his fifth season victory at the tender age of 17.  Prado was second in race1 and first in race2, which won him the Grand Prix. Now he is just 9 lengths from the World Series leader Pauls Jonass. Young Sidi riders continue to impress in the MX2: at Ottobiano Prado (KTM) was 1st, American Thomas Covington (Husqvarna) 2nd and Dane Thomas Kjer Olsen (Husqvarna) 4th.

Speaking of young talent, we cannot ignore the EMX250 race. The strong French kid Mathys Boisrame (Honda) was 2nd in race1 and ninth in race2 yesterday at Ottobiano, and he is still ahead in the European Championship. However the big surprise for the Sidi colours came from the 14 year-old Australian Jett Lawrence (Suzuki), Hunter Lawrence’s younger brother. Jett was 10th   in race1 then in race2 he put everyone in line and won, making it to the final podium for the grand prix in third place. This kid is the youngest rider in the category, and he’s displaying remarkably sheer talent.  This was the best result ever for him so far in the EMX250. After being cast into the mix of the European Championship Jett has not disappointed, managing to keep up with older, more experienced riders since the very beginning.

And finally, let’s not forget the WMX, where Sidi’s “terrible” girls put on quite a show. World Champion Kiara Fontanesi (Yamaha) won race1, Nancy Van de Ven (Yamaha) won race2 and in the final standings for the grand prix Nancy is currently first and Kiara is second. Here, too, the race for the title is still wide open, with Kiara and Nancy basically tied for second in the general classification with 163 points, trailing the current leader Duncan, who’s ahead with 184 points.

The motocross season will feature thrills and surprises all the way to the end. In the present and in the future, one thing is certain: Sidi. As they pursue their feats, all these riders can count on Sidi Crossfire 3 SRS boots, the top models in Sidi’s off-road collection. Sidi is on the highest spot on the podium with the champions of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
