What's with the specs Cav is wearing for every post-race interview?
Three possibilities come to mind:
1. He thinks they look cool and they've just got plain glass in
2. Product placement for which he's getting paid
3. He wears contact lenses for racing but swaps them for specs after the finish.
What do you reckon?

To keep the pish out of his eyes?

In reply to Rog Wilko: The first half of 1, definitely 2, possibly 3, but he might also be wearing presciption Radar Locks when racing so doesn't need to take contacts out. He does wear glasses and wears those Oakleys when he's not racing too, i.e. they're his specs but I'm sure Oakley pays him to wear them!

He's launch his own brand, CVNDSH with products from Oakley, Specialized and Nike. The brand strapline is FST AS FCK, which has raised a few eybrows:

But not his mouth unfortunately. Although after yesterday's pre-emptive strop maybe Oakley can work on a gag as well..

I'm sure someone re-wrote it as CHV AS FCK..which seemed appropriate

In reply to PeterM: Either that or SHT AS FCK - which is no doubt what most celebrity branded products are.
