Farrar takes Delta Tour Zeeland ahead of Petacchi

Tyler Farrar did what he had to do in to wrap up the overall title at the Delta Tour Zeeland in Holland on Sunday.

The Garmin-Slipstream rider sprinted ahead of archrival Alessandro Petacchi (LPR Brakes) in Sunday’s 185km stage, finishing second to winner Robert Wagner (Skil-Shimano), but ahead of Petacchi, who crossed the line third.

When the time bonuses were added up, Farrar came out on top, winning the three-day race in southern Holland by 11 seconds ahead of Petacchi. Wagner claimed third overall at 13 seconds back.

Farrar won Friday’s opening prologue, putting him into the leader’s jersey and taking important time against the sprinters.

He was second to Petacchi in Saturday’s stage, but widened his grip on the race leader’s jersey to six seconds going into Sunday’s finale.

A victory by Petacchi would have meant the overall for the Italian star, but Farrar stayed ahead of him to secure the GC prize for the 25-year-old.

The victory will give Farrar even more confidence for what’s expected to be a nod to start the Tour de France next month.
