Cycling Weekly photographer Andy Jones spotted these new Oakley colours during the tour de France presentations taking place today (Friday).

At the Silence-Lotto team presentation, Cadel Evans had a purple and yellow pair of Radar glasses with Path lens – but why not in team colours? Well, Evans has opted to go for the colours of Tibet. The pensive Aussie Tour contender is a keen supporter of the Tibetan cause, and had the glasses made to signify his backing.

Meanwhile, Mark Cavendish gets a pair of Radars in Team Columbia colours, complete with light-reactive photo chromatic lenses.
