Tenth Fireflies Tour ends today

Videos from the first three days of the gruelling eight-day ride

The tenth Fireflies Tour is due to finish today in Cannes after eight gruelling days that saw the 60 riders battling with some fearsome weather and savage climbs.

The riders, mainly from the film and advertising industries, have cycled 1,000 kilometres through the Alps from Geneva to Cannes with the aim of bringing the amount they’ve raised for Leuka, a cancer charity, to the £1,000,000 mark.

Videos shot over the first three days of the ride are now online – we’ll publish the rest when they appear. Find out more about the ride - and how you can support the riders – on the Fireflies Tour site

Saw some of these guys coming off the Glandon last week. Was suffering like a dog all day, the photo's are not pretty, and managed to hang on to some wheels for the final few miles of the descent but could not keep pace on the run into Bourg d'Oisan.
