Oakley’s Danilo Di Luca has taken over the pink leader’s jersey after finishing second in Wednesday’s punishing fifth stage of the Giro d’Italia. The ‘07 Giro champion finished three seconds ahead of Sweden’s Thomas Lovkvist, who took the pink jersey on Tuesday, allowing him to lead by five seconds in the overall classification.

Oakley’s Michael Rogers sits in third, followed by Denis Menchov in fifth and Tour de France champion Carlos Sastre in 7th.

Mark Cavendish enjoyed three days in pink, as the first British rider to wear the maglia rosa at the Giro de Italia. The Oakley rider placed second in the second stage wearing White Jawbones with Polarized Positive Red. The pink jersey is just the latest accolade for Cavendish, who has eight wins so far this season (the most recent being the dramatic Milan-San Remo victory).
