If you’ve paid any attention to the Tour de France in your life time, you’ve seen no shortage of Oakley cyclists topping the podium at the most prestigious road cycling race on the planet. You’ve seen innovative product that not only looks fast and sleek, but provides the world’s greatest cyclists with the best possible eye protection. This year’s Tour will be no different.
In anticipation of the kilometers to be ridden, the cobblestones to be braved and the agonizing glory to be had by any one of the hundreds of cyclists who will ride in the 99th Tour de France, we’d like to take a moment to reflect back on the tales of the 2011 Tour and pay our final respects to their legendary performances for we know the weeks to come will be filled with stunning sprints, brave descents and the inevitable heart break.
The 2011 Tour de France was undoubtedly one of the most exciting Tours of the last 20 years; complete with devastating crashes, exciting sprint finishes and an emotional overall victory that has been years in the making. Oakley is proud to congratulate Cadel Evans on his much-deserved victory as well as the rest of the Oakley team who collectively rode one of the most successful Tours in recent Oakley history.
