Gone Racing – Alt Tour de France de Lachy
It’s late October and Lachlan Morton has just finished the Giro d’Italia 2020 when his team manager Jonathon Vaughters calls. “How do you feel about taking part in another Grand Tour next season? ” he asks. Lachlan is not sure. “Don’t worry,” comes the response. “It won’t be like anything you’ve done before. We have something else planned. Are you in? “
The Alt Tour. Each stage and each transfer of the Tour 2021. 5,550 km from Brest to Paris with more than 65,000 meters of vertical drop and only 23 days to cover the distance. No teammates to take cover behind, no mechanics and no days off. It was a challenge to Lachlan Morton. Of course he was in it but could he hold on?
If you followed Lachlan’s point in July, then this is the movie you’ve been waiting for. The latest episode of Rapha Gone Racing immerses you in Lachlan’s ambitious attempt to complete the Alt Tour, beat the peloton in Paris, and raise money for World Bicycle Relief.
