11.00pm - What's the last thing you'd fancy doing after riding 200+km on a bike? I should think uploading videos and writing a blog would probably not find themselves at the top of your list. So please take a few minutes to read the blog of former national chef of the year Hayden Groves called 'it's not about the grouse.' Read it HERE and watch his GoPro footage of Stage 12 below.

8.02pm - The eagle-eyed amongst you might just spot Andy at the front and on screen at the 2nd of his quiz nights to raise funds for this challenge. Hope everyone is having a great night!

8.00pm - As the team rest up and refuel after the longest stage of the Giro we have yet more great news to bring you! We are delighted to announce that Andy Parker from accountancy firm PKF Cooper Parry will join the 3 Tours Challenge team for the Tour de France leg of this epic cycling challenge. Andy has already raised over £11,000 and is holding a quiz night to raise more funds this evening as his future teammates draw breath after today. Read more HERE or what this video which was obviously filmed before Geoff left for Italy. Obviously!

3pm - Some fantastic news for the team and for Cure Leukaemia to bring you. The Crystal Palace squad has generously donated to the cause. Read the whole story HERE. Everyone associated with the challenge and Cure Leukaemia is so grateful.

6.00am - Stage 12 today. Not as bumpy as yesterday but so much longer - 229km!! These guys are pushing themselves so hard.
