Tyler Farrar before the start, looking like a winner. He's got the hair gel thing just right.

Looks like it could be the start of the local Tour of Possum Trot. What gives it away as a top pro race is that masters ride bikes that are far more expensive than these. They wouldn't be caught on this cheap stuff.

A shot of the race with about an hour to go.

After coming so close so often in the Tour de France, Tyler Farrar nails a big one with a good, clean, clear win.

Farrar celebrates a Pro Tour race win.
