Champion Vision: Oakley Global Star Cyclists Set to Shine at 2011 Tour de France, Poised to Continue Winning Tradition
The past decade of Tour de France podium stars have had one common denominator. Championship vision. So it’s no surprise that a huge portion of Cycling’s elite have trusted Oakley’s patented technologies to help take them to the pinnacle of the sport. With Oakley-equipped athletes gracing the podium for each of the past 10 years of the Tour, a winning tradition has been established for the World’s best rocking the O for performance. And our team is poised to continue the tradition…big time…this year in France.
Team Leopard Trek owned its rivals in Luxembourg City. The Oakley-sponsored team nearly bagged the final stage at the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg with Frank Schleck eventually ending up with second. But the glory was ultimately theirs, as Linus Gerdemann would take it home following a bold stage two triumph and the overall victory.
Bradley Wiggins’ track to potential glory at the Tour de France kicked off in…well, France. Although fellow Oakley Athlete Joaquim Rodriguez claimed the final stage at Critérium du Dauphiné, it was Bradley who would take the overall victory with a one minute and 26 second advantage over yet another fellow O cyclist, Cadel Evans.
