Property developers get back in the saddle for Dallaglio Cycle Slam

Two intrepid cyclists are joining forces with England rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio in an epic challenge to help raise funds for underprivileged teenagers.

Scott Davidson and Damian Middleton of property developers Henry Davidson Developments (HDD), which has offices in Nottingham, will cycle across Europe alongside up to 200 supporters and celebrities, as part of the Dallaglio RugbyWorks Cycle Slam.
The event will take World Cup winner Dallaglio on an energy-sapping journey through the French and Swiss Alps, Italian lakes and stunning scenery of Slovenia and Croatia, where the 1,800km challenge comes to an end in June 2018.

An epic three-week cycling challenge, the Dallaglio Cycle Slam raises funds for RugbyWorks, a programme that uses rugby to engage troubled teenagers who have been permanently excluded from mainstream education.

Scott, HDD managing director, and associate director Damian, will battle saddle sore and searing temperatures as they embark upon the grueling 566km leg from the city of Udine in Italy, to Split in Croatia.  Their journey will take five days to complete. 
Scott said:
“We’re very proud to join Lawrence and his team on this fantastic event to support RugbyWorks. Lawrence is a fantastic guy whose dedication and sense of teamwork inspires people on and off the road. 
“It will be my fourth time at the Dallaglio Slam and Damian’s second, so we’re hoping that experience will see us through!
“We’re hoping to raise a total of at least £6,000 for the charity, which will help two young people to complete the RugbyWorks programme and have a chance of a much better future.”

Established in 2009 by the former England rugby union captain, the Dallaglio Cycle Slam is split into three stages of five days’ cycling. Up to 30 core riders complete the whole three-week challenge alongside Lawrence.  

The event raises funds for RugbyWorks, a sports-based motivational and personal development programme that uses rugby to transform the aspirations of teenagers at increased risk of long-term unemployment, criminality and imprisonment.
