Farrar On a Roll in Belgium!

Wednesday, April 07, 2010
BelgiumGarmin-Transitions rider Tyler Farrar kept his hot streak alive, sprinting to his second major win in Belgium in a week. Farrar powered past some of the world’s fastest sprinters on his Felt F1 to take the victory in the 98th Schelderprijs, a 204.5-kilometer midweek Semi-Classic.

Farrar’s win at the Antwerp event follows a stage victory at last week’s Three Days of De Panne stage race and an impressive fifth-place finish at Tour of Flanders Classic on April 4.

Farrar, an American who lives in Belgium, told journalists after Flanders that he’s feeling stronger than ever this season.

Farrar timed his sprint perfectly in Wednesday's Scheldeprijs race, beating Australian Robbie McEwen and German Robert Forster, who finished second and third respectively.
