In the tour de france, the winners jersey is the ‘maillot jaune’, the yellow jersey.
At the tour down under, instead, it is the ochre jersey, with a nice bright orange hue.
As part of the beat cancer tour, the organisers have arranged to award one rider each day with an ochre jersey. However it is not for the quickest rider, it is instead awarded to the rider that shows the most heart, supports other riders etc.
I am very humbled to have been awarded the first ochre jersey of the first ever beat cancer tour for the efforts put in fundraising and spreading Davids story.
I will wear the jersey tomorrow for stage 1, with pride for David Michael Hall.
