ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
The team will cycle through all of the RBS 6 Nations countries, taking in each of the international rugby stadia along the way. The aim is to raise at least £1million, the net proceeds of which will be split equally between Sport Relief and the newly formed Dallaglio Foundation
Stage three of the Dallaglio Cycle Slam started on Tuesday 22nd February with a visit to the 80,000 capacity French national stadium, the Stade de France. The fundraising team of cyclists departed from the inspiring stadium as they embark on a gruelling four day, 400km stage to Twickenham.
Support Amlin ambassador Lawrence Dallaglio on this mammoth ride by donating via www.dallagliocycleslam.com. A £5 donation can also be made by texting 'SLAM' to 70005 (UK only). Net proceeds will be split equally between Sport Relief and the Dallaglio Foundation.
