Team.Factor was ready to ride in the 2018 BUPA Challenge Tour for its 6th year, but unfortunately the race day was cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. The ride was to be from Norwood to Uraidla, just over 137.40kms in total. 

Team.Factor is a group of cyclists led by Dr Simon McRae and Andrew Atkins from the South Australian Haemophilia Centre who ride in the Tour to fundraise for HFA and the bleeding disorders community. The BUPA Challenge Tour is a public race where cyclists can ride the same course as Stage 4 of the Santos Tour Down Under on the same day as the elite cyclists.

“The team was pretty disappointed that the day got cancelled.  The ride has such a scenic route and riding for our favourite cause makes it all worth the while.” said Andrew Atkins

We thank everyone who made a donation to Team.Factor in 2018 and we look forward to seeing the team ride in 2019.
