Spanning eight days and covering 155.5 kilometers, the 70th edition of the Paris-Nice was no walk (or ride) in the park. Oakley rider Bradley Wiggins found this out first hand, narrowly riding away with the overall victory by a margin of just eight seconds. The 31-year-old Bradley outlasted his Dutch rival, Lieuwe Westra, in the final and decisive mountain time trial stage, finishing just two seconds ahead, securing the overall title for the first time in his career.
Oakley’s Bradley Wiggins of Britain claimed his first ever leader’s jersey in a Grand Tour by winning the opening time trial in the Giro d’Italia. Oakley’s reigning world champion Cadel Evans of Australia took third in the time trial and took the lead in the overall standings in stage two.
