    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.

Mark emerged from a hotly contested bunch sprint at the tail end of the stage – from Carhaix to Cap Frehel. “I’m just passionate about my sport, I love to win and the team gave it everything today to make sure I could get to the line first,” Mark said, rocking his Oakley performance eyewear. “There are a lot of difficult finishes this year and not so many bunch sprints, so I had to make sure I got this one, I had to be resilient.”
