Farrar impressed me on stage 19, when he finished 2nd to Gilbert on the "Bumpy" road to Toledo. That final uphill sapped the energy out of most of the pure sprinters and Farrar managed to hang on. If Gilbert is expected to be a big favorite due to the Worlds course profile, I would expect Farrar to be right up there with him.
Im super psyched that local NH boy Ted King got selected. Had the pleasure of watching him and his older brother race in a local crit back in July. After his crash at Nationals (A rogue feedbag took out his handlebars I hear) I'm sure he's looking to reestablish himself and get noticed (I believe he's still without contract after the news that Cervelo is going under.) Expect him to be domestique extraordinaire.
