EGAN BERNAL WINS THE PARIS-NICE AS HE GETS READY FOR THE “GRAND TOURS" - Sidi and the talented young Colombian from Team Sky start the season with a bang.

The Tirreno-Adriatico in Italy and the Paris-Nice in France were two important tests for riders vying to stand out as contenders in the Grand Tours of the 2019 season (Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta Espana).

Sidi received significant  satisfaction from France, where Egan Bernal won the Paris-Nice (held from March 10th to the 17th).This season everyone has high hopes for the talented young Colombian rider on Team Sky and since his very first moves in the beginning of 2019  Bernal has been living up to all expectations.

The short French stage race saw a compelling, all-Colombian head-to-head between the young Bernal, who is in the yellow jersey after the 7th stage arrival on Col de Turini, and the more experienced Nairo Quintana (Movistar). From the very start of the final fraction, Quintana was on the attack, breaking away and doing everything he could to get the best of his fellow countryman. However Bernal had great support from his team mates, who helped him administer his advantage, and in the end he managed to take home this prestigious victory. Egan Bernal (Team Sky) came in first; Nairo Quintana (Movistar) was second at 39” and Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) was third at 1’.03”; this is the final classification on for the 2019 Paris-Nice.

This is the first victory of the season for Bernal, who will be the Captain for Team Sky at the Giro d’Italia, where the goal and the dream will be the maglia rosa. So Sidi actually celebrated two athletes on the podium in Nice; besides Bernal, Poland’s Kwiatkowski was also up there. Incidentally, after the fourth stage Kwiato spent three days in the leader’s jersey.

As they race towards their goals, both Egan Bernal and Michal Kwiatkowski can count on Sidi’s support. Egan Bernal chose the Sidi Shot, while Michal Kwiatkowski uses the Sidi Wire 2 Carbon shoe. These two models offer technical features, performance and design which make them the top models in Sidi’s 2019 collection for road cycling.  Find out more about these models and all our shoes on our website:
