Hair lost, $8,000 gained as Lachlan Morton and Mitch Docker raise funds for fire relief

by CyclingTips


Australians Lachlan Morton and Mitch Docker put their locks and mos on the line to raise funds for the Salvation Army’s bushfire relief. They’ve raised over $8,000, and counting.

The two followed through on their promise to shave for charity after the fourth stage of the Tour Down Under, allowing fans who raised the most funds to lop off Docker’s iconic facial hair and Lachlan’s mop up top.

“I don’t know if it’s about being proud about it, it’s just the little thing we can do,” Morton said. “It didn’t take a huge amount of effort for us, it’s just about giving up our hair more than anything. There’s a lot of people who have lost a lot more than their hair and a lot of people who have given a lot more. It’s just the little thing we can do.”
