Crutchlow, Smith Will Be Sponsored By Sidi Boots In 2013

Cal Crutchlow (35).

In 2013 Crutchlow and Smith will form an all-Sidi attack team riding for Team Yamaha Tech 3

The World motorcycling season has just wrapped up but the champions from Sidi are already looking ahead to 2013. Among these aces the name Cal Crutchlow stands out. Born in Britain in 1985 and riding for team Monster Yamaha Tech 3, this year Crutchlow made it to the third step on the podium twice, first in the Czech Republic GP and then in Australia, where he closed out the season in seventh place in the world rankings.

Cal Crutchlow has already been a World Champion in Supersport and obtained excellent results in Superbike. For 2013 he has decided to continue riding in the Moto GP and he will stay with team Monster Yamaha Tech 3. As always he can count on his trusty Sidi Vortice boots. Joining him on the team, fresh out of the Moto2 class, will be his fellow countryman Bradley Smith, who will also be wearing Sidi boots. The two British riders will thus make up a spectacular attack pair, completely branded by Sidi. The two Brits already made their debut in the two days of tests that took place on the Valencia circuit immediately after the Wold Cup race. After the first day of lousy weather, on the second day Crutchlow closed out his 28 laps in second place right on the heels of Dani Pedrosa; Smith instead was trying out his new motorcycle, riding for 43 laps and placing eleventh.

"I'm happy to be continuing my adventure in MotoGP," says Crutchlow. "I have enormous faith in the team. In 2013 I think we can be even more competitive. As always, I'm going to be wearing my Vortice boots. I can only thank the Sidi staff for their support and all the faith they've invested in me. I've been using Sidi boots for many years and they've been with me for the most important achievements in my career. I hope that together we can obtain many more."
