Tour de France - Points Classification
I'm a bit surprised to see this match-up. Farrar is a class, or maybe two above Renshaw. His team will help him more, he possesses more power and speed and is the far more reliable sprinter.
Renshaw of course made his name as lead-out for Cavendish in the sprints, he's fast as well and may get a near top5 spot in some sprints on a good day, but i don't see any consitency in him. So clearly much value on Farrar, only way i see this go wrong is if Farrar doesn't reach Paris.
