Farrar Lone American Starting At Roubaix

‘One’ it is the loneliest number, particularly, when you are an American racing Paris-Roubaix.

Among the Americans the ‘Hell of the North’ has never been a big draw, and none of the rider from the U.S. has ever owned it. However, this year Roubaix will see an American to take part in the event. The only one American Tyler Farrar of Dimension Data will take part in the 115th edition of the race, which is considered as hardest in the world.

Farrar said in an interview, “The Paris-Roubaix classics have never been in the priority list of the United States. In any race of this event so far, it has never happened that more than two participants would have competed.”

There was some good year for America in the event, but then also not more than a handful participated in Roubaix. In 115th edition of the race, two racers were to  participate the other one is Taylor Phinney, but at Ronde van Vlaanderen, he got injured during a spill and thus, the team will see only one player taking part in the event.

Richie Porte will be attempting to join an illustrious list this week and expects to get his best Tour de France form guide in the course of the event.

Porte, 32, will be looking to become the sixth three-time winner of the weeklong stage race that starts at the traditional end point of the Tour de France and terminates just a short ride away from his European home.

The Paris-Nice which dates as far back as in 1933, remains the most prestigious WorldTour stage race outside the three Grand Tours. Where Porte is able to add to his successes in 2013 and 2015, he will go on to join up with such cycling royalty as Laurent Jalabert, Eddy Merckx, Joop Zoetemelk and Sean Kelly as triple winners of the event.

The Tasmanian who began this season with a long overdue victory in South Australia’s Tour Down Under, currently sits at the top of the world rankings. He would be in the lead for the BMC racing squad as they head into the 1227-kilometre, eight-stage race. Continue reading RICHIE PORTE HOPES FOR HAT-TRICK IN PARIS-NICE

He has labeled the Spanish race as the toughest grand tour he has ever completed, in terms of terrain.

The American veteran who race for Dimension Data has completed five editions of the Giro D’Italia, Tour de Fance, and rouching wood- the vuelta a Espana. He recounted that the increasing level of difficulty is not exclusive to the Spanis Grand Tour. Speaking to Cycling News he sad:

“This year, I did the hardest Tour of California ever, followed by the hardest Tour de Suisse ever, followed by the hardest ever Vuelta.

“So do we want cycling to be a last man standing epic affair every day? If that’s what cycling wants, then OK. Or do we want it to be more tactical, go back to a more traditional format?”

Tyler And Vuelta Course

Every cyclist has his or her favorite tracks and courses.

Tyler has experienced and loved the laid back environment that Vuelta offers. Even though the courses that run through this region do not offer him much for sprint finishes, but he loves the Vuelta a Espana. Indeed, this course in Spain might burn his skin and freckled face but this weekend he would begin the grand tour here. It is a tour that is taking place in the northwest part of the country. This would be the fifth time that he would take part in the tour. He would be part of the team comprising of Nathan Haas and Kristian Sbaragli.
