The major motocross season will officially begin with the Italian International MX series. This event has traditionally served as an indulgent teaser before the World Championship Series that will kick off on Sunday, March 3rd with the first race in Argentina.
There are three rounds on the schedule for the Italian International MX series. On Sunday, January 27th, round 1 got everything started at Riola Sardo; round 2 will take place at Ottobiano on February 3rd and on February 10th, round 3 will be held in Mantua.
In Sardinia Sidi and their riders stood out immediately as absolute stars. In the MXGP race, Tony Cairoli (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) won the competition and laid down the law. Cairoli appeared to be in top form as he takes on the 2019 MXGP World Series on a quest to capture his tenth title. The Sidi house is also proud to point out the good eighth place obtained by Alessandro Lupino (Gebben Van Venrooy Kawasaki). Jorge Prado (Red Bull KTM Factory Racing) won the MX2 race; after ending 2018 with the young Spanish rider as the winner of the MX2 World title, and now he looks like he’s ready to go to bat again. Sidi also gives a nod to Alberto Forato (Maddii Racing), who ranked in tenth place.
Finally, Sidi also shined on the podium in the Superfinal round, which saw the best 20 riders from MXGP and the best 20 riders from MX2. In fact, Tony Cairoli once again put everyone in line, and Jorge Prado scored a fantastic third place, proving he’s got what it takes to keep up with the big boys.
YOU TOO SHOULD CHOOSE CROSSFIRE 3 SRS…
What is the secret weapon of all their champions’? Crossfire 3 SRS, of course. This is the unbeatable boot on any terrain and in any conditions. There are no equals; in the last several seasons it has earned the title of the most victorious boot ever in off-road riding.
Crossfire 3 SRS is available to the public in a wide range of colours, from the classics to more appealing modern hues aimed at satisfying every demand and creating the perfect matching look for any rider. Furthermore, an ample choice of available components and spare parts means to create an ever-changing, personalized look.
From a technical standpoint, the strong suits of this boot, which make it so highly appreciated among top riders in world motocross, are:
1) Hyper Extension Block: in action, the foot and ankle are subject to extreme movements and at risk of injury; with a ball joint on the ankle, this system prevents hyper-extension of the ankle, the top of the foot and rear tendons while the leg flexes forward and/or backward.
2) Adjustable Calf System: the leg shaft of the boot has a replaceable muffler guard on the inside, to protect the leg from the heat of the engine and protect against wear. Furthermore, a rubber insert allows the rider to get a firmer leg grip on the motorcycle frame. With this system, the opening of the boot can be adjusted simply and practically on both sides to insure a perfectly comfortable fit, even on the largest calves. Not only that; this feature also meets the needs of riders who often wear knee guards and braces that need more room to be worn, without interfering with the proper closure of the boot.
3) Dovetail Sole Srs: this is an innovative design and a revolutionary substitution system. The sole’s point and heel are fixed in place, while the central part, made up of a rubber insert, has been designed with a new interlocking system with 4 safety screws, so it can be changed out. The boot is also available in a version featuring the Ideal MX sole in rubber.
Crossfire 3 SRS and Crossfire 3, with their various versions, cover all sizes from 40 to 50. The Sidi collection is available on the Motogear website, New Zealand’s Distributors: https://www.motogear.co.nz/search?q=sidi+crossfire+3, where you can also verify the
