Carlos Sastre and Andy Schleck

Oakley must be a proud bunch this week, following their success at the Tour de France over the past three weeks.

Why do you ask? Well, throughout the three weeks, 3,500km and 21 stages, Oakley produced six different leaders and 14 stage wins. Not forgetting that Oakley’s Carlos Sastre won the Tour. In addition to this, Cadel Evans (also an Oakley boy) was runner-up for the second consecutive year. And who could forget the four incredible stage wins from the fatest man on the Tour, our very own Mark Cavendish.
