Giro d’Italia: Sidi Sport in Pink and Red

Rigoberto Uran wears the pink jersey and Nacer Bouhanni the red.

The final phase of the 2014 Giro d’Italia is approaching. After the third rest day the Giro will enter its third week and will no doubt offer plenty of excitement. The Sidi Sport colors are pink and red. The pink is that of the Giro leader’s jersey, which, after victory in the Barolo time trial and the first climbs, rests comfortably on the shoulders of Rigoberto Uran. Omega Pharma – Quick-Step’s Colombian leads the classification by 1’03” over the Australian Cadel Evans and 1’50” over the Pole Rafal Majka. It is a good margin for Uran, but the race is still wide open!

The red is that of Frenchman Nacer Bouhanni (FDJ), the fast man of this Giro, who, thanks to three stage wins, wears the red jersey of the leader of the points classification.

Assisting these two extraordinary champions and all the other Sidi athletes participating in the Giro are the lightweight, durable and high-performance Wire shoes, the top-of-the-line model in Sidi’s road cycling collection.

The road to Trieste is still long, with many hidden dangers: three mountaintop finishes, including the terrible Zoncolan, as well as the time trial up Monte Grappa. Race leader Uran and the other Sidi champions will give their all, and Sidi will be there with them as they ride, fight and win!
