Tally Two: Oakley Cycling Star Mark Cavendish Claims Stage 7 Tour de France Victory, Six of Top Seven Riders Rocking O


Make that two for Mark Cavendish.

Oakley’s Star HTC Highroad Cyclist blazed his way to his second Tour de France stage victory and his overall 17th win in Chateauroux – where he claimed his first-ever Tour stage in 2008.

“It’s a special stage for me,” Mark said in his Oakley performance eyewear. “I won my first Tour stage here in Chateauroux and it’s very sentimental. It’s what I fell in love with.”

With that, Oakley riders are continuing their domination of the race. Fellow Oakley cyclist Thor Hushovd remains the Tour’s overall leader – and young, talented Spaniard JJ Rojas claimed the Green Jersey (points classification).

Six of the current Top 7 are rocking the O on their faces. Just how we like it.
