Team Garmin: Tyler Farrar scores historic repeat at Vattenfall


TylerVattenfall This weekend, Tyler Farrar made it clear that he's recovered from injuries suffered at the Tour when he became the first cyclist to win back-to-back titles at the Vattenfall Cyclassics.

“It’s amazing to have won again,” Farrar told Cyclingnews after taking the sprint finish to win the 216.6km race. “It always takes a lot of luck to win a one-day race like Vattenfall. To have that luck for two years in a row it’s nice for me. I love this race. It’s kind of the perfect for me, for my characteristics.”

“I had a rough month with injuries at the Tour de France because I broke my wrist. To come back and win again makes me feel like things are on the right track. I’ll ride a few more one-days and then the Vuelta and the world championships. They’re the important ones for me,” he said.

UPDATE: Team Garmin continued its winning ways on Tuesday as Canadian time trial champ Svein Tuft won the Eneco Tour prologue in The Netherlands, and Irishman Dan Martin won Tre Valli Varesine in Italy. It was just a week ago that Dan and Svein teamed up for a daily double in Poland and Denmark! Visit the Team Garmin
