Wednesday 25th April was the third day of the Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam 2012 ( and quite a good day for the body because the climbs were not too bad and the distance was just under 90km’s.

It was a nice day on the road, great views of the Greek coastline and even a small stop at the seaside town of Plataria for a quick swim. Simon ‘Headless’ Hunter was on good form this day performing some road bike freestyle to break the monotony and Lawrence Dallaglio needed a leadership medal for making the call on the Plataria beach stop off!

It felt like a good day to almost recover a little from the first two days. Day Four is 140km’s so a slightly easier day was desperately needed. My legs felt ok but my neck is in a pretty bad way. The people working for David Roberts Physiotherapy have done an amazing job keep us all going this week. Thank you for keeping my neck turning!

There has been a massive amount of donating going on over the past week and the amount raised is steadily heading towards the £1.5 million mark now which is amazing. Please have a look at the website and continue to donate to the Dallaglio Foundation, the AF Foundation and Virgin Unite. My donation page is Please help me raise my target of £6k, any size donation welcome. Look forward to seeing some of you on our Academy UK ski courses over May and in Saas-Fee in the summer.
