    Liggett pronounces both ways.
    So I guess it depends on the weather.

    they were talking about this the other day on belgian tv.

    apparently the pronunciation is very similar to farrah, as in farrah fawcett.

    Just like it is spelled. F-O-C-K-E-R

    I pronounce it miller.

    As far as farrar. i say fa-rar. Like ferarri without the "e" sound at the end.

    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    being a fellow Farrar myself, ive given up telling people which way to pronounce it. some say "fair-er" but most say "Fa-RAWR" so I usually just go with that although it comes from "ferrier" so I think "fair-er" is closer to the real thing.


    also, (sadly) no relation to Tyler

    Well, it seems like the consensus is Miller. I guess I lose the bet with my gf. That said, we did call a friend last night whose last name is Millar, and he says his family pronounces it Mill-ar, but everyone else says Miller.

    Liggett pronounces it "from the American squad Garmin-Slipstream".

    +1, plus I love those commercials where the dude takes the High Life away from folks who aren't worthy.
