Tyler Farrar



Tyler Farrar is one of those household names in professional cycling who has 28 wins as a professional rider. In the early part of his career, Tyler was a thoroughbred sprinter who would duel for the stage victories in the big bunch sprints. In 2015 he joined our African Team and took on the role as a road captain. Our success at that year’s Tour de France is evidence enough to show Tyler led the boys well.

In 2016, he had his objectives as one of the classics riders while also providing support to other sprinters. He proved that the new environment has brought a renewed motivation to him. He looks forward to another big year in 2017.
