Tyler Farrar has called time on his 15-year career after completing the GP Montreal with Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka last Sunday.
Farrar joined our African Team in 2015 and was part of our 9-man squad that made history by racing the Tour de France that year. Farrar was an integral part to our leadout and classics team, but it was his value in mentoring our African riders and captaining our team on the road which made him a priceless asset to our team.
Farrar is credited with 29 professional victories and the 33-year-old American is also one of the very few riders to have won stages in all 3 grand tours. Congratulations Tyler Farrar on a fine career and thank you for your contribution to African Cycling.
Tyler Farrar – Rider
The last 15 years have been a surreal adventure, but the time has come for me to call an end to my career. Cycling is a beautiful sport and it has been a dream come true for me to be a part of the rolling circus that is the professional peloton. I have been honoured to be a part of great teams and work with many amazing people throughout my career. I am leaving with wonderful memories and I would like to sincerely thank everyone, the fans, staff, family and friends who have supported me over the years.
