Signed Cairoli boots up for auction

The Sidi boots worn by nine-time world champion Tony Cairoli in his last ever GP are up for grabs in a charity auction. Sidi is paying homage to him with a limited edition of 222 set of his favourite yellow Atojo boots for sale around the world. But the pair he wore are now up for grabs. You can bid HERE!

Tony wore them in world championship finale at Mantova on 7 November 2021 for the last time, he then signed them and returned them to Sidi. The boots, in size 42, are auctioned with the original Cairoli signature, race-soiled from the event and in their original box. The proceeds from the auction will go to Two Wheels For Life which uses motorcycles to help provide health care to people in the poorest and most remote areas of Africa.

“I know I’ve been lucky, I could follow my passion and make a job out of it and an important part of my life. Of course I’ve faced and managed some difficult situations, I’ve made some sacrifices, but I think I’ve really been privileged,” says the champion from Sicily. “I am particularly fond of these boots. They are the result of a special collaboration with Sidi and an undisputed evolution in motorbike boots. There were a few points we wanted to bring out and we succeeded. They’re definitely my favourite boots and I’m happy that someone can buy them at the auction and help us support someone in need.”

Two Wheels for Life has been making sure that health care is provided to people in the poorest and most remote areas of Africa for over 30 years, supported by the world of motorbikes. Health workers now can quickly and safely travel to the most remote areas in Africa on fully functioning motorbikes to treat babies, children and the elderly.

Founder of Two Wheels for Life, Andrea Coleman said: “This is a very welcome and exciting moment for us. The support that Tony Cairoli is giving to our work is very valuable. We know that whoever wins these boots will be receiving a much loved and high quality product that has seen Tony achieve success after success. We can also show that stars like Tony are supporting motorcyclists in very remote communities to save and improve lives in Africa by taking the health care that they so desperately need. Thank you, Tony, his team and Sidi.”
