For the fifth year a group of cyclists led by Dr Simon McRae and Andrew Atkins, who both work at the Haemophilia Treatment Centre at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, will ride as Team.Factor to take on the BUPA Challenge Tour in South Australia on Friday 20 January 2017. The 2017 Bupa Challenge Tour will be from Norwood to Campbelltown, in total 157.50kms.
They will be fundraising for their favourite cause – Haemophilia Foundation Australia.
The BUPA Challenge Ride is part of the Santos Tour Down Under in Adelaide, the first stop on the world elite cycling calendar. It gives regular cyclists the opportunity to ride the same Stage 4 route on the same day as the elite cyclists in the Tour Down Under.
Team.Factor is a group of 15 men and women and includes:
Andrew Atkins, Mariette Boshoff, Marthinus Boshoff , Brad Clausen, Jaymie Clausen, Dan Drake, Uwe Hahn, Leon Langenhoven, Simon McRae , Cam McRae, Alexander Nicholson, Tina Noutsos, Thomas Viljoen, Kobie von Wielligh, Eric von Wielligh.
We are calling on all South Australians to come and cheer the team on at key spots in Birdwood, Mt Pleasant, Norwood and the finish line at Campbelltown.
