After his win on the crash-marred first stage of this year's Tour de France, Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) earned himself more than just a stage win, he had also picked up the first yellow jersey of the 2020 race. However, for his time on the podium, Kristoff wasn't just sporting a new jersey, he was also spotted wearing a new pair of custom Scicon cycling sunglasses.

Less than 48 hours after Scicon launched the Aerowing and Aeroshade sunglasses, Kristoff turned the bling up to 11 by wearing a pair of gold-plated, diamond-encrusted Aerowing sunglasses.
