Tour De France 2012: Tyler Farrar Will Ride In Support Of Ryder Hesjedal

Tyler Farrar is one of two Northwestern cyclists who will be riding in the 2012 Tour de France. While Farrar will not personally be gunning for the yellow jersey (or at least, that is not the plan), his Garmin-Barracuda team has a very distinct chance of leaving the world's biggest cycling event with the top prize in the sport.

Farrar and the rest of the Garmin-Barracuda team will be riding in support of lead cyclist Ryder Hesjedal, who won the 2012 Giro d'Italia. VeloNews relayed the official announcement from Garmin-Barracuda earlier in the week.

"We have put together a well-balanced team with an emphasis on support for our leader, Ryder. We have Christian (Vande Velde) and Tom (Danielson), both excellent climbers who each have had great GC rides in the Tour and have shown their strength in recent racing."

Farrar will be just one member of a very strong team ... one that could end up taking it all.
