LACHLAN’S TOUR DE FRANCE SOLO EFFORT
This year, EF Education – Nippo Pro Cycling is bringing Lachlan Morton, a ninth rider, who will set off after the rest of the peloton on his own Alt Tour, comprised of the entire race distance — 3,423 miles, including transfers that are driven by Tour racers. Morton will ride the whole distance and attempt to arrive in Paris before the race.
The Alt Tour will serve as a fundraiser for World Bicycle Relief. Team sponsors Rapha and EF Education will each donate 500 bikes to the organization. Fan following Morton’s progress can also donate HERE
