Can anybody tell me the manufacturer/model of those blue shades George is sporting over in France? TIA

I think George is wearing white Oakley racing jackets with fire lenses. I can't recall him wearing blue glasses. Most, if not all, of the USPS team use Oakleys.

The frames are Racing Jackets, the lenses, however seem to be gold iridium Water Jackets. The frames are the same in the front part, with the Water Jackets sporting a strap across the rear. Hincapie's lenses seem to have the air vents of the WJs.
I actually called Oakley to get a setup like this put into an older RJ frame of mine, but was told it would void the warranty. It's nice to be sponsored...

US Postal uses Oakley's almost exclusively.
