READY TO ROAR IN THE MOTOCROSS WORLD SERIES… - Tony Cairoli, Jorge Prado and all of Sidi’s other top riders to race in Argentina.

The motocross season is kicking off from Argentina with the Patagonia GP, the first of 19 rounds featured on the 2019 calendar. The opening race of the season will line up riders for the MXGP and MX2 classes. In both of these categories Sidi can count on all the great talent and true grit of our riders.

In the MXGP, Sidi is keeping a close eye on our undisputed leader, motocross phenomenon Tony Cairoli (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing). After winning some encouraging victories in the MX Italian International series, Cairoli is setting out to capture what could be his tenth World Championship title. The rider will definitely want to make up for a series of unfortunate mishaps that plagued him in the 2018 season.

An injury has forced the reigning MXGP World Champion Jeffrey Herlings to sit out the first events of the season, and Tony Cairoli is planning to take full advantage of his adversary’s misfortune. However, Cairoli will have to watch his back from more formidable competition like Tim Gajser, Romain Febvre and Clement Desalle, as well as some possible outsiders like Gautier Paulin, Jeremy Seewer, Arminas Jasikonis and Paul Jonass.

Sidi also has another Italian rider in the ranks of MXGP. We’re referring to Alessandro Lupino, riding a Kawasaki for team Gebben Van Venrooy.

Meanwhile, in MX2, the Sidi company has all its spotlights focused on the young and talented Jorge Prado (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing). After taking home the MX2 title in 2018, the Spanish rider is starting out the season intending to reaffirm all the impressive performances he had last year, and clearly his aim will be to make it to the top step on the podium once again. In the MX Italian International Series, he was also displaying impressive speed and perfect form.

The MX2 class is sure to be a battle between pilots from the Sidi team. In fact, Prado will have to look out for the Dane Thomas Kjer Olsen (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing), who closed out last year’s World rankings in third place.

Unfortunately, in Argentina Sidi won’t be able to count on Olsen’s team mate, Australia’s Jed Beaton, who has to sit out the first round of the season due to an injury sustained in France at the LaCapelle Marival International MX race.  

Sidi is also keeping an eye on another young talent, France’s Mathys Boisramè, who will be making his debut in the MX2 category after winning the European title in the EMX250 class last season.

Sidi is a sponsor and technical supplier to Mathys’ squadron, team Honda RedMoto Assomotor, which will also feature Belgium’s Brent Van Doninck. These young and determined riders are eager to stand out and exciting to watch.

Obviously, the stars on the Sidi team are none other than Antonio Cairoli and Jorge Prado, who are the pride and joy of team manager Claudio De Carli; The Sicilian rider is a legend who also represents today’s motocross, while the Spaniard holds definite promise for the future, even though he is already a force to contend with.

As the MX World Series gets underway, all participating Sidi riders can count on Sidi Crossfire 3 Srs boots. This is the boot to beat on any terrain and in any conditions. No other boot can compare; over the last several seasons it has earned the title as the most victorious boot ever in off-road racing. Now, even regular fans can wear this extraordinary boot, featuring the same technology and quality that Sidi provides to the biggest names in motocross. Crossfire 3 Srs and Crossfire 3 come in various versions, from size 40 to 50. The entire Sidi collection is available from our website: www.sidi.com , where you can also see which colours and models are available in which countries.
