Photo-finish goes to France

Report courtesy Jeff Sobul

The 'normally photogenic' Tyler Farrar (USA) came out on the wrong end of a photo finish at the prestigious GP Waregem in Belgium on Wednesday. The race is one of the biggest espoir contests in Belgium, and was part of the Espoir World Cup before the new Pro Tour system went into effect this year.

This year's edition ended in a field sprint that came down to a photo finish for the win. "Unfortunately I came out on the wrong end of it," said Farrar, who was racing with the USA Cycling Under 23 national team.

"The race was quite hard. We did a lot of the famous climbs from the Tour of Flanders," he noted. The biggest included the Eikenburg, the Knockteburg, Kwaremont and the Patersburg. "The US team rode superbly, bringing back a dangerous break with 10 km to go," Farrar said. "If not for them, the race might not have even come down to a bunch sprint."

Farrar, who also rides for US pro squad, Health Net presented by Maxxis, will continue his European swing with the U23 national team through mid-April. He returns stateside with the U23 team for the Dodge Tour de Georgia.
