Farrar At The Double in Franco-Belge

POPERINGE, Belgium, Oct 2, 2009 (AFP) – American Tyler Farrar claimed his second sprint win in as many days beating Alexandre Usov and Jimmy Casper at the finish line of the Franco-Belge stage race Friday.

Garmin sprinter Farrar highlighted his great end of season form by winning the first stage on Thursday.

Farrar had a promising, but win less Tour de France campaign in July but bounced back to win the Hamburg Cyclassics one-day race in August.

He continued his good form by winning three stages at the Eneco Tour, and also won a stage at the three-week Tour of Spain which finished last Sunday.
