A huge roar broke out as Gilbert crossed the finishing line, where he was followed by the Spanish rider Rodriguez and Australia’s Gerrans.

Gilbert concluded this exceptional and glorious sequence of victories with the most important for him; the Liège-Bastogne-Liège. It’s the first time ever that a cyclist wins the four Classics cycle races in a single season.
For those great performances, the champion Gilbert once again chose Rudy Project. For the very sunny conditions during the races, Philippe Gilbert chose Genetyk Racing Pro White with red photochromatic lenses, which can ensure excellent contrast and, therefore, perfect vision. In addition, the photochromatic lenses darken when necessary and offer total protection against light rays. A racy design, with wraparound mask style lenses and highly-advanced technology: these are the winning features of these glasses made for champions, ideal for places on the most important podiums. The end pieces of the temples can be adjusted in every direction by simply applying light pressure and, like the bridge, are in Megol® (allergy-proof silicon). This ensures a perfect fit so that the glasses adhere perfectly to the face under all conditions, preventing the frame from scratching. Fitted with adjustable end pieces and bridge, to ensure a perfect fit, Genetyk may also have clip-on parts for graduated lenses, attaching easily behind the sun lenses.
