Crescent Fixi Suzuki's World Superbike team principle Paul Denning is teaming-up with England Cricket legend Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff and Rugby International Lawrence Dallaglio in a gruelling 600-kilometre cycle ride for charity in May.

The former Rizla Suzuki MotoGP manager and keep-fit fanatic will join the athletes on the third of five stages - a five-day ascent up and through the Italian Alps - for Cycle Slam 2012 that starts on April 23rd from the birth place of the Olympic Games at Olympia in Greece; and finishes on May 18th at London's Olympic Stadium, the venue of the 2012 Olympics.

The Dallaglio-Flintoff Cycle Slam 2012 has already raised almost ?190,000 in advanced pledges with a total fundraising goal of ?2 Million. Denning, along with all other riders taking part, have committed to raise in excess of ?3000 each.

"My suffering in Italy is in order to support three fantastic charities; the Dallaglio Foundation, the AF Foundation & Virgin Unite, so any money donated will help develop three amazing projects," said Denning.

"Firstly, the Dallaglio Foundation is supporting Cancer Research UK's cutting-edge project on prostate cancer genetics that will help to build a new era of personalised medicine.

"Secondly, the AF Foundation - set up by Andrew and Rachael Flintoff - is a children's charity raising funds to build, develop and improve Child Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy Units throughout the UK.

"Thirdly, Virgin Unite: A contribution of all donations will be made to the not-for-profit foundation Virgin Unite to support their programmes that help young people in the UK to increase their employability and entrepreneurialism, so I hope we can contribute to these great causes."
