Stuey Wins Crown Jewel of Cycling
After so many years without a victory at this incomparable classic, Oakley dominated the hardest cycling race in the world, placing two riders on the podium and 3 guys on the top seven, each one of them with a different model of our sport application glasses (M FRAME, RADAR AND FLAK JACKET).
Stuart O’Grady outwitted the favorites to become the first Australian to win the Queen of Classics, Paris-Roubaix. Taking over from team leader and title-holder Fabian Cancellara, the 33-year-old rider from Adelaide surged 25 kms from the line to finish all by himself on the Roubaix cycling track.
Hampered by injury for most of last season, the CSC rider took the sweetest revenge with the best of the 46 victories in his career, which included a couple of Tour de France stages and an Olympic gold medal for the Madison in Athens.
Oakley placed 3 riders O’Grady won wearing M FRAMES, Wesseman finished third wearing RADARS and Hammong from the UK finished 7th wearing our new FLAK JACKET.
