    Arnaud Demare is widely considered one of the most talented French cyclists in the game. The kicker – he’s not even 21-years-old yet. The 20-year-old FDJ-BigMat, U-23 World Road Champion proved why he is a rising star at the Vattenfall Cyclassics in Hamburg, Germany as he took down some of the sports most experienced veterans. Demare beat out Andre Greipel (Lotto-Belisol) with a late charge to win the 245.9km race.

    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.

    Oakley-sponsored Team Sky has never taken a stage win. Until now. Our Norwegian Cyclist Edvald Boasson Hagen powered his way to a Stage 6 victory during the longest of the contest’s stages. The 226.5km stretch, from Dinan to Lisieux, had Edvald edge fellow O rider Matt Goss on the uphill drag to the finish – with O’s Thor Hushovd rounding out the podium. Thor, who has been rocking that Yellow Jersey to this point, did just enough to hold onto the coveted shirt by a mere second in front of Oakley’s Cadel Evans – with O’s Frank Schleck four seconds behind the third spot. With that, Oakley domination of the overall Top 10 continued – holding nine of 10 spots.
