Tyler Farrar is one of the popular road racing cyclists who has been playing for Team Dimension Data.
This American cyclist has achieved Circuit Franco- Belge in 2009 and Vattenfall Cyclassics in 2010. After playing for close to 7 years for Slipstream and Chipotle, the player has finally decided to sign up with MTN Qhubeka in this season. One of the recent matches played by this rider was the Tour De Suisse wherein he showed his splendid performance like always.
The Tour de Suisse was the match that was indeed worth watching as it was quite an interesting one. It kept the crowd engaged till the end. Jarlinson Pantano achieved victory in the final stage, Sergey Chernetski achieved 2nd position, and Jon Izaguirre was 3rd in the group sprint. Miguel Angel Lopez achieved the overall leading position in the Tour de Suisse. Although Farrar could not make it to victory, he showed his best performance and put in every effort to win. The final stage of the match had to be cut short to 57 km due to extreme weather conditions. The riders had a tough time riding in the slight downhill to the Fluelapass till the finishing line.
The Tour Down Under that was held in Australia in the month of January this year is something that is worth recollecting. It shows how popular Farrar has been as a rider and how his fans go out of their way to support him. A fan who offered his own bike to save Farrar is one of the ideal examples to prove this statement. In addition to the bike, the fan also offered his shoes to Farrar to ensure that the rider continued racing even after the crash in the 3rd stage. Without the help of his fan, the rider could not have made it to top. He was quite delighted with the support rendered by his fans in Australia and thanked them wholeheartedly.
