Farrar wins Hamburg Cyclassics

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) - Tyler Farrar of the United States has won the Hamburg Cyclassics ProTour cycling race for the second year in a row. Farrar won a mass sprint ahead of Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway and Andre Greipel of Germany on Sunday.

Several groups tried to break away along the mostly flat course around Hamburg, but all were caught to leave the race to be decided in the final sprint.

Farrar covered the 135 miles in 5 hours, 2.36 minutes, ahead of 40 other riders all credited with the same time.
