Now the Fireflies - that intrepid squad of superstar cyclists from the advertising and production industres are nearing the final stages of their mammoth epic journey across numerous peaks of the French Alps from Geneva to Cannes. They are due to arrive in Cannes on Wednesday (possibly just in time to watch some football match). You can see more pics of their remarkable 2010 tour- which involved the toughest conditions ever faced in ten years of the Fireflies on Day 3, from Val Disere to Valloire - on the <a href="http://www.thefirefliestour.com/" target="_blank">website</a>. And of course there is still time to sponsor members of the team, like Phil Tidy, <a href="http://www.justgiving.com/philtidy-fireflies-2010" target="_blank">here</a>.
