Watch Geoff's View On The 3 Tours Challenge

26 September 2017

At the recent home match against Southampton the club were delighted to welcome former captain, Geoff Thomas, as we all celebrated the completion of the 3 Tours Challenge for Cure Leukaemia.

Four amateur cyclists led by Geoff, the former Eagles captain and blood cancer survivor, completed a monumental 10,760km on bikes – in an attempt to raise £1m for Cure Leukaemia.

The team cycled the Giro D’Italia, Tour de France and Spanish Vuelta consecutively, a challenge that only 39 professional cyclists have undertaken.

On the eve of his visit to Selhurst Park prior to that match against Southampton we were delighted to hear from Geoff on such an incredible achievement as he took us through his own experiences during an amazing 63 days of cycling.
