10.00am - They have done it! These 5 amateur cyclists have completed the first leg of their epic 3 Tours Challenge. The Giro d'Italia has been harder than any of them imagined - 3,600km and full of gruelling mountain climbs. They are doing this to save lives and help Cure Leukaemia raise an additional £1m this year to expand the Centre for Clinical Haematology. The team have had so many generous donations from all over the world and every penny of these will go towards Cure Leukaemia's appeal.
This Giro leg simply would not have happened without the sponsors so a huge thank you to all them all and especially Farr Vintners. The team are seeking further sponsors for the next two tours so please get in touch if you would like your business to be a part of this amazing story.
8.26am - Emotional words from Geoff ahead of the final stage into Milan. The team has taken this epic challenge on to help people in the same position that Geoff was 14 years ago.
6.01am - They have travelled 3,585.7km in 20, gruelling days. That distance is the equivalent to travelling direct from Birmingham to Mary's Harbour in Canada - effectively they have cycled the Atlantic Ocean. Extraordinary.
6.00am - And so this is it. The final 29.3km of the Giro D'Italia for the 3 Tours Challenge Team. Starting in the famous Monza race track they will soon be in Milan having completed a truly epic challenge for Cure Leukaemia.
