Tyler Farrar to compete in Tour Down Under

Date

Adelaide

American sprinter Tyler Farrar will make his comeback from injury in this month's Tour Down Under cycling event.

Farrar hasn't raced since September when he suffered concussion in a fall during the Tour of Britain.

His strong 2012 season had previously included stage wins in the US Pro Cycling Challenge, the Tour of Utah and the Giro d'Italia.

Farrar, who first rode the Australian tour in 2011, was confirmed on Friday as a member of the Garmin Sharp team for the six-stage road race, based around Adelaide and starting January 20.

Spanish brothers Gorka and Jon Izaguirre were also named among the Euskaltel Euskadi team for the 15th edition of the race.
