Sidi athletes Roger Kluge and Matteo Trentin win Stages 17 and 18
Sidi's exceptional Giro d'Italia has continued this week with another two stage victories from riders sporting the brand's shoes.
On Stage 17 (Wednesday 25 May), German track sprinter Roger Kluge of IAM Cycling flew out of the bunch in the final kilometre to leapfrog past Filipo Pozzato and take the win.
Stage 18 was the 2016 Giro's longest at 240km and a far cry from the previous day's flat finish. Riders would have to contend with a closing 4.5km with a 10 percent average gradient and a savagely steep cobbled section on the way to the line.
Matteo Trentin of Etixx - Quick-Step put in a perfectly-judged attack to overtake fellow Sidi rider Moreno Moser over Cannondale Pro Cycling.
These are the third and fourth stage wins for Sidi riders at this year's Giro, following on from Mikel Nieve's victory for Team Sky on Stage 13 and Orica-GreenEdge's Esteban Chaves' win on Stage 14.
All these riders have scored their wins using Sidi's top-of-the-line Wire Carbon shoes, which represent the accumulation of 40 years of cycling footwear knowhow.
The lightweight carbon sole features custom ventilation while the luxuriously comfortable Microfibre Tech Pro upper lovingly wraps your feet and is secured by a pair of Sidi Tecno-3 Push dials and Sidi's famous Soft Instep strap. Heel slip is eliminated by the Adjustable Heel Retention Device while Sidi's famous longevity is increased further still by the replaceable heel pad.
