TYLER FARRAR
TEAM DIMENSION DATA

American rider Tylar Farrar has announced his retirement from professional cycling after a 13-year career at teams from three different continents.

Farrar (33) began his career at Jelly Belly in 2003 and has since worn the colours of Health Net-Maxxis, Cofidis, Slipstream (now Cannondale-Drapac) and Dimension Data.

During his career, Farrar joined the select club of riders that have won stages at all three grand tours with one victory at the 2011 Tour de France, two at the 2010 Giro d'Italia and three wins at the Vuelta a España, collected in 2009 and 2010.

In addition, he has won the Vattenfall Cyclassics in 2009 and 2010 and the Scheldeprijs in 2010.

"The last 15 years have been a surreal adventure, but the time has come for me to call an end to my career," Farrar explained in a statement issued by his current team Dimension Data.

"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.
