Farrar Sprints Down Under
9 Nov, 2010

Sprint star Tyler Farrar will compete at the 2011 Santos Tour Down Under in Adelaide, South Australia, for the first time in his career.

Santos Tour Down Under Race Director Mike Turtur says American Tyler Farrar is the first member of the Garmin-Transitions team confirmed for the race in South Australia on 16-23 January 2011. The team will officially become Team Garmin-Cervelo in 2011.

"It’s great for our race to have a cyclist of Farrar’s calibre competing here in January. I believe he could be the next big threat to international sprinters," says Mike Turtur.

"Farrar has had an impressive season, with two stage wins each in the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a Espana as well as finishing top three in some Tour de France stages despite a broken wrist.

"Farrar has also won the Vattenfall Cyclassics in Germany for the last two years."

"We are proud and excited to bring Tyler, one of the worlds best sprinters, along with a great team to the Santos Tour Down Under," said Matt White, Competition Director for Team Garmin-Transitions.

"As usual, we will look to animate the race and we're confident that with Tyler and the rest of our squad, we'll do just that."

Tyler Farrar is the second rider confirmed to compete in the 2011 Santos Tour Down Under. Last month it was announced that Lance Armstrong will make compete in Adelaide in his last professional race on international soil. More team and rider announcements will be made in the coming weeks.
