After the stage win Farrar said “I certainly would have taken it on any day,” “But as an American, winning on the Fourth of July, it’s the icing on the cake. … Lucky me.”

Right after he crossed over the finish like he held up his hand to form a ‘W’ using his fingers and thumbs honoring his friend as well as training partner Wouter Weylandt who unfortunately died in a crash during the Giro d’Italia back in May. Farrar then pulled out of Giro after his friend crashed , the 26 year old from Belgium had clipped a wall in a rather sharp descent as he fell off his bike and hit his head on the ground in the third stage of the race, dying on the spot.

Farrar said “This has been a horrible last two months with everything that happened in the Giro,” “I’ve had a lot of ups and downs. But in the end, I wanted to be able to come back, and do something special to pay tribute — and this is certainly the biggest stage in the world to do that.” Football betting lines

He also said “It’s a little bit unbelievable to me at the moment that it actually happened,”

In the finale on Monday, The Cavendish’s HTC highroad team had lined up in order to escort the British speedster over to the finish line near the 2.4 mile mark but in the last few hundred both Farrar and Hushovd had gotten ahead .Farray speaking of Hushovd said “To have the world champion and yellow jersey work for you to launch the sprint, it’s crazy,”
