Lawrence Dallaglio calls in on Wolseley
Rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio pedalled into Wolseley UK’s head office in Leamington Spa as part of the 2014 Dallaglio Cycle Slam. He stopped for an energy-boosting lunch provide by Dallaglio Cycle Slam sponsor Catermasters — along with Austin Healey, Martin Johnson, Martin Corry and 60 other riders. He is pictured with Lee Newman, director Wolseley UK (right) and Tony Carr, who is joint managing director of Catermasters.
The team were en route from Loughborough to Bicester on day 18 of the 2321 km ride. To the delight of Wolseley UK and Catermasters employees, Dallaglio made time for a Q&A session. He said, ‘It’s been an amazing experience. I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped support the Dallaglio Cycle Slam and raise so much money for our work with young people. Bring on the next one.’
The 2014 event takes in the Italian Dolomites, Swiss and French Alps and Yorkshire Moors — taking in the climbs of the Tour de France and Gira d’Italia.
