Lee Dixon on Cycling, Wattbike and CycleSlam

I went over to see Lee Dixon a few weeks ago to see how he was getting on with his training - Lee used to play football for Arsenal and England and can now be seen every weekend on BBC's Football Focus and Match of the Day 2.

It's fairly obvious that Lee has been bitten by the cycling bug quite badly - it gets us all eventually, right?

He's now in training for the Dallaglio-Flintoff Cycle Slam which will see him cover nearly 3,000km in less than a month whilst riding from Olympia in Greece to London.  He doesn't do challenges by half does he!

Watch as Lee talks about his love for cycling, training on a Wattbike, tips from Dave Brailsford and a call out to Will Carling!

You can help Lee raise money via his Fundraising Page - he's raised just over £13,500 in his quest to raise £15,000 so if you can spare a few quid to help him reach his goal I know he'd be most grateful.
