AFL premiership player and Norm Smith Medallist Ryan O’Keefe is used to leading from the front on the big stage.

So it won’t be a surprise if he spends plenty of time on the front of the peloton when he leads a charity ride from Adelaide to Melbourne which began yesterday.

O’Keefe is among 13 riders tackling the inaugural event dubbed the DBH Road Raise, which aims to raise funds and awareness for CanTeen.

Now an Adelaide Crows assistant coach, O’Keefe has been riding 400km a week in preparation for the six-day, 970km journey.

“I might have to drag a few of our riders along, I’m not sure how much everyone’s been doing training-wise but that will show on the second and third day,” O’Keefe said.
