Leok Shines With Sidi Crossfire Boots In The Mud At The MX1 - Dirt Rider Magazine

March 30th, 2009 - Estonian Tanel Leok delivered a victory to Sidi in the MX1 class at the first race in the 2009 World Cup Motocross circuit which took place on Sunday, March 29th under torrential rain on the Italian circuit in Faenza. Leok, nicknamed "The Estonian Express" by his fans, beat out the Belgians Ken De Dycker and Clement Desalle. 5th place went to the Sidi ace Tony Cairoli, who tried to collect important points for the world standings with a careful and safe ride, beating out David Philippaerts (who was only 9th), the man considered Cairoli's immediate rival for the 2009 Championship title. Heavy mud made the race track almost unrideable and led to the cancellation of the second race in both the MX1 and MX2 categories, but it didn't stop Sidi's Crossfire boots, unbeatable on every terrain and all weather conditions, from making it to the top step of the podium once more.
