Farrar Wins in Europe
Today Farrar took his first Eurpean win of the season on stage three of the Tour de l’Eurométropole.
“The guys were fantastic today,” Farrar said after the stage.
“It was a super hectic finishing circuit, but the guys rode great and kept me out of trouble. It’s been a long wait for a European victory so it’s a big relief to finally get that monkey off my back this season.”
Farrar had a lot of success across the Atlantic at the Tour of California but was still searching for a European victory.
But it was only a matter of time before the win would come, especially after two top-5 results in the previous two stages.
The win pulls him up to third on the overall, only seven second down, heading into the final stage.
After the Tour de l’Eurométropole, Farrar will head to the outskirts of Paris for the one-day Paris-Tours on October 13. He has been 5th before and hopes to get another good result.
Returning to Garmin-Sharp
With no signed contract at the end of the Vuleta, there has been speculation about the rider’s future with Garmin-Sharp where he’s been since 2008. When asked after his victory about the future, Fararr confirmed he’ll be returning to the team and has signed on for one more year.
