Tyler Farrar adopts spectator’s bike following crash on Tour Down Under

Tyler Farrar, an American cyclist, got into difficulty during stage 3 of Tour Down Under near Adelaide, Australia.

He rammed during a sprint and then he ended up in a dump, and his bike was bust up. But a kind-hearted watcher came to the rescue, passing on over his own bike so Farrar could end the race.
Tyler was travelling at speeds of more than forty miles per hour when he came off the path during the 139 kilometers stage in south Australia, and was left bruised and bloodied. He was evaluated by medical personnel, and appeared all set to carry on, but a few miles down the road realized that his bike was in no right state to carry on. The backing squad had driven off, and it appeared as if Farrar was finished – but for the interference of Anthony Tooman.
Tooman said that they could see him on the side of the road, and he asked whether he requires a wheel. He answered that the wheel is not going to cut it. Then he asked what pedals he is running. He was on Speedplay and he was on Shimano. They he said that he might just take everything. They also swapped shoes. Tyler, then jumped on to Tooman’s bike. Tooman gave him some water and bid adieu.
