It was definitely a pleasant change in scenery. In a sport known for charging through challenging landscapes and conditions, riders enjoyed a sunny ‘vacation’ this past weekend at the Amstel Curaçao event in the Caribbean. Oakley’s Frank Schleck mashed his way to victory on the beautiful Dutch island, boosting his morale and building strong form as he prepares to begin racing for Luxembourg Pro Cycling Project, a new squad featuring many of his current teammates from Team Saxo Bank.
Once again Oakley provided what many called their best trip ever. From the entertaining bus rides to riding brand new Cervelo’s on the Stage 18 course to a VIP Suite at the finish line on the Champs-Elysee to a private dinner party in le Louvre garden.
On a cool overcast day in Paris the 2010 Tour de France came to an end in another dramatic sprint that showcased how dominate Mark Cavendish really can be at the finish line. Beating his next closest competitor by over 10 meters Mark put up a high five to indicate his fifth stage victory at this year’s Tour de France, giving him an unprecedented 15 total stage victories in three years at the Tour.
