Farrar is in Green at Oman. Damn he looks good in that colour. For the full report skip on over to slipstreamsports website to get the full skinny. There is something I like about Tyler Farrar and here is my list.
- He lives in G(h)ent. Unlike many US Pro’s he favours the tough playground that is Flanders. Who’d bet against him winning one of the Classic or Semi Classic races that criss cross his training roads. Gent-Wevelgem must be close to his heart and he has just a good a chance of winning it as Cavendish.
- He’s a big sprinting unit who is developing at a very nice rate, maturing like a fine wine.
- On the bike he has a great position. I know this is really sad but having fitted many riders over the years I really enjoy observing someone who sits well on a bike. I know it’s geeky.
- As a fellow red head I have that affinity that you can only have if you have it.
