Tyler Farrar wins the overall, points and best young rider classifications at the Delta Tour of Zeeland in Holland.

Race report from Tyler Farrar:

Well, it was hard fought until the very end, but everything came together for me to win this weekend. The Delta Tour is an incredibly nervous race because the GC is often decided by only a few seconds. After winning the prologue we knew that we would have to chase every time bonus we could get if I was going to keep the jersey. I was able to pick up enough bonus sprints mid race and place well enough in the road stages that it all worked out though. There were a few stressful moments when the race blew apart on the wet cobbles Sunday, but Julien did an amazing ride to get back to the front and keep it all together for another bunch sprint.
