Team Garmin: Tyler Farrar gets grand win at Vuelta!
One day after his teammate Ryder Hesjedal finished second at the Vuelta and VeloNews published a tally of Team Garmin-Slipstream's successes and near-misses over the past two years, American sprinting sensation Tyler Farrar flew through the finish for his first stage win in a grand tour, and Team Garmin's first grand-tour victory since last season's Giro d'Italia team time trial.
The online outpouring of support was instant on VeloNews' live tour tracker, with comments coming from cubicles: "My neighbors have no idea what I'm yelling about…nice job, Tyler!" and crowds: "Everyone around me was looking at me funny when I started pumping my fist in the air." and cars: "I parked my car at a yield sign, cars were driving around me. I rarely cheer online updates, but this was one. "
And the cheering – online or otherwise – will continue unbridled for another day as the peloton takes a breather in Spain. Meanwhile, Team Garmin fans will turn their attention to the Tour of Missouri, where Timmy Duggan held out as long as possible Tuesday in a lengthy breakaway.
