This is bad, bad news.
"Tyler was unable to take the start at the Tour of Britain today after crashing heavily during stage one, significantly hitting his head and suffering a severe concussion. The team has a strict head injury policy and protocol and Tyler continues to undergo evaluation. Team medical staff is working closely with him to monitor his condition."
- Dr. Prentice Steffen
Taken from their Facebook page. I do hope this is an overly cautious diagnosis and that Farrar will be fine as soon as possible. I also hope his season is over, because coming back quickly from any concussion is tricky. Get well Tyler!
