hrotha said:I found this quite surprising, as it looked like he was improving. I don't think you can contest sprints if you're so terrible you need to quit the next day before the fun even starts. Did he have any new problems aside from his elbow?
White explained that, while Farrar could overcome the pain to sprint, he paid for the effort the following day. "Sprints are easier for Tyler to get through because the adrenaline in that situation helps mask the pain.
"Today was the hardest day of the race so far and the kind of climbing and descending these guys did is incredibly painful for an injury like Tyler's. Having to brake on the descents is probably the most painful thing to do with a broken wrist.
