The Three Tours Challenge

In 2017, we are taking on each of the Three Grand Tours: The Giro D’Italia, Le Tour de France and La Vuelta a España, consecutively, with aim of raising £1m for blood cancer charity Cure Leukaemia. Our current team of five amateur riders will cycle each stage of these famous events, one day ahead of the professionals. We are the first team to ever take this challenge on and only 39 professional cyclists have ever completed it.

We will ride every inch of the 10,403 kilometres and climb over 66,000 metres in 63 days - all to raise £1m for Cure Leukaemia. Can you help us?
