Primero: Formula 1 Superstar Fernando Alonso Holds Championship Lead, Grabs Second at British Grand Prix
Fernando Alonso may have had to settle for second at Silverstone. But make no mistake; the top spot in Formula 1’s Championship Standings still belongs to Ferrari. Oakley’s Spanish speed demon finished a solid race at the British Grand Prix weekend – securing the runner-up spot behind Mark Webber, who edged the superstar with seven laps left.
Most X Games fans in the United States more than likely weren’t familiar with Sebastien Loeb. Little did they know – especially due to a lack of publicity by the Games – that a Global World Rally Car Championship (WRC) Superstar and Legend was in their midst. Oakley’s eight-time WRC Champion, famous worldwide as an absolute Rally Car Icon in the actual global circuit, made his first-ever appearance in the United States.

After grabbing the Holeshot with authority, he gapped the competition and powered his way to the win unchallenged. “To come back from to the silver to the gold is great,” he said, rocking his Oakley MX Goggles. “That was my goal this year. All day long I was riding good and I had good times, and I knew if I got a good start I help me win the gold.”
