A shoe, for a cyclist, is not just a simple garment: it is a working tool, it is the link between the man and his bicycle, it is a companion of the long days spent on the saddle pushing on the pedals. Starting next season, on the feet of the EOLO KOMETA riders there will be the guarantee of Sidi shoes: quality, innovation and aesthetic beauty (which never hurts…) to run towards greater and greater goals.

Our guys got their first taste of the Sidi world at the “fitting day” during our last training camp: a day when each runner was given the opportunity to try on his shoe to find the perfect fusion between foot and shoe. A crucial moment, given the great importance of the shoe in contributing to the athlete’s final performance.

And it is nice to note that the story between our team and Sidi is one of those that speak of returns, of circles that close, of relationships that continue. Yes, because Sidi has accompanied in the past the exploits and victories of our Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, who now find Sidi again in the team they founded and lead. “For me – says Alberto Contador –  the fact that SIDI is returning to the team and to our feets is a reason of excitement and pride. It is the brand of shoes with which I achieved my first successes, my first Grand Tours from a very young age. They followed me in every race, they adapted at all times to personalise them, to make them specific for my feet. They are shoes that guarantee performance, and to work with them again is very special. Representing this brand and having them in the team means a lot, because I feel that in a way they are part of me. The care they are putting into adapting each shoe for each cyclist is not visible, but it’s going to be showed, and it’s going to be the start of a long relationship!”. With Sidi on my feet,” says Ivan Basso, “I won my two Giro d’Italia and it’s really a wonderful return with a company that accompanied me in my most important achievements. I am delighted and I am sure this will be a very successful partnership.”

Lorenzo Fortunato, EOLO KOMETA rider and winner of the stage with arrival on Mount Zoncolan in the Giro d’Italia 2021: “I have already had the opportunity to race with Sidi on my feet for two seasons, I know them very well and they are shoes with which I have always had excellent sensations. All the more reason to look forward to next season!”

Davide Rossetti CEO Sidi: “As a company constantly looking to the future, Sidi is really excited to have closed the partnership with EOLO KOMETA. The rapid growth of this team denotes absolute commitment, total dedication and attention to the smallest details. Needless to deny the excitement of collaborating with champions such as Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso, now leading a team to which they will inevitably pass on their talent. Impossible to forget the countless successes achieved by both of them and the passion with which they led their cycling careers. A very respectable calling card. We share their journey and believe in the comparison, certain that the continuous exchanges of opinions and experiences – of athletes and staff – will allow the company to further increase the wealth of knowledge already studded with important successes that can be translated into increasingly high-performance products, available to professionals but especially to the immense community of amateurs. We can’t wait to get started.”

Listed among the world’s leading brands, thanks to innovation and expertise, its products are used by top professional athletes and enthusiasts around the world. The company is now preparing for a further phase of growth and development in which EOLO – KOMETA will also play an important role.
