rider Tyler Farrar
kept his hot streak alive, sprinting to his second major win
in Belgium in a week. Farrar powered past some of the world’s fastest sprinters on his Felt F1
to take the victory in the 98th Schelderprijs
, a 204.5-kilometer midweek Semi-Classic.
Farrar’s win at the Antwerp event follows a stage victory
at last week’s Three Days of De Panne
stage race and an impressive fifth-place
finish at Tour of Flanders
Classic on April 4.
Farrar, an American who lives in Belgium, told journalists after Flanders that he’s feeling stronger than ever this season.
Farrar timed his sprint perfectly in Wednesday's Scheldeprijs race, beating Australian Robbie McEwen and German Robert Forster, who finished second and third respectively. 94th SCHELDEPRIJS
