Lachlan Morton (EF Education-Nippo) reached Andorra and continued to climb the Pyrenees as he raced the Tour de France peloton in his Alt Tour charity race. The support of his team-mate Jimmy Whelan, fellow Australian Rohan Dennis and wife Rachel cheered him up after covering nearly 4,000 km in 160 hours in the saddle.

The Australian, who will be “racing” the Tour de France to raise funds for World Bicycle Relief, started his challenge in Brest and travels the entire Tour de France route, including transfers between stages, alone and without assistance. He plans to cover a total of 5,500 km in just 23 days.
