Not content with a 158.7km ride from Glenelg to Strathalbyn during the Tour Down Under, Lee Hanatschek is adding an extra 42km to make it a 200km day.

The 41-year-old from the Gold Coast is flying to Adelaide for The Challenge Tour on January 19 but with his eye on a much bigger goal in May — the Tour de Cure which will take him 1287km from Sydney to Geelong.

“This will be the second time I’ve done the Challenge Tour and I’m using it as a bit of a training run to get some more fitness in,” he said.
