    The 2009/2010 runner up has officially arrived. Oakley Star Cyclist Andy Schleck of Leopard Trek – edged out last year by defending Champ Alberto Contador for the Yellow Jersey – finally clinched a stage victory (18) after steadily stepping up over the course of the race. The 26-year-old phenom stepped up the attack in stunning fashion to triumph atop the Col du Galibier. Reminiscent of past battles with his primary rival, Andy broke clear with a charge on the Col d’Izoard – leaving Contador flailing in the peloton.

    He may have been edged by fellow O star Thor Hushovd in the 16th stage. But this time, Edvald Boasson Hagen took it to the house. Oakley’s Norwegian standout powered his way into a 14-man escape group on the 179km route as the race raged into Italy – then executed a decisive attack on the day’s final ascent with 11km left. Edvald sailed past Sylvan Chavanel and pulled away from the pack for a glorious Stage 17 victory.

    Make that two for Thor Hushovd. Oakley’s Norwegian World Champ blazed his way to his second stage win at the 2011 Tour de France with an impressive sprint finish in Gap. Coming out of the gates on fire for the last six days of racing, he displayed top form during the 162.5km 16th stage – spanning from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateax to Gap. There were 10 men to break away from the pack after the 90km mark – and Thor powered to the front with Ryder Hesjedal and fellow Oakley Rider Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky). The Norwegian standout, with some help from Hesjedal, engaged in a head to head sprint with Boasson Hagen all the way to the line – where Thor clutched the victory.
