That's how America does it! WOOOOO! Ha!
American cyclist, Tyler Farrar, is the first American to win a Tour de France stage on the most American day of the year — the 4th of July!
It was a great day for the one of the world's best sprinters, as the victory on the third leg of the Tour de France was his first win at the race ever. After his historic win, he said:
”I certainly would have taken it on any day, but as an American, winning on the Fourth of July, it's the icing on the cake. … Lucky me.”
Congrats on the win, Tyler!
The cyclist still has A LOT of work cut out for him though. Yesterday's portion was just the 3rd out of 21 stages in the grueling 3430.5-kilometer, 22-day race across France. Good luck!
