What's Cool In Road Cycling

Wherever There is Racing, Sidi is Winning!

From South Africa to Italy, passing through Qatar, Sidi Sport makes it to the top of the podium.

The first part of the season is already bringing tremendous satisfaction to the Sidi Sport colours. The races contested in these past few days have seen Sidi riders shining on all fronts yet again. From South Africa to Italy and passing through Qatar, the athletes crossing the finish line with arms raised in triumph have all been wearing Sidi Wire shoes, which always stand out as the top models in the Sidi Sport road collection.

We’ll begin with Jaco Venter, from Team Dimension Data, the South African formation which made the big leap this year to become a World Team, winning the South African National Championship.

Crossing the globe to the north we made a stop in Qatar, where Norwegian Alexander Kristoff scored a hat trick at the Tour of Qatar, winning three stages to take away second place in the general classification for the short Arabic stage race, after a fantastic duel with high speed sprints between him and Mark Cavendish. For Team Katusha, whose riders are all wearing Sidi shoes this year, this are their first season’s victories. It was really a great way to begin the winning partnership between Team Katusha & Sidi Sport.

And to finish up in style we come to Italy, where Andrea Fedi from Team Southeast-Venezuela, another formation that all race under the Sidi brand, won the Trofeo Laigueglia, the Ligurian classic season opener, beating Sonny Colbrelli and Grega Bole in the final sprint.

When the road beckons, Sidi responds!
