Story

Race Across Europe 2019 I have been putting myself through the mill for Scottys Little Soldiers since 2013. I've played rugby for over 25hrs, walked 150 miles, ridden countless miles on my bike, but now I am about to take on the toughest , most extreme challenge yet In June 2019, I (Dominic O'Sullivan) will be aiming to complete the toughest bike race in Europe as a solo rider- The Race Across Europe, 300 miles over 7 countries, with climbing of over 170000ft. The Race Across Europe sets off from Calais on the 28th June. My aim is to win the race! My aim is to complete 250 mile day, we go over the Alps twice, the Pyrenees once, it will be the ultimate mental and physical challenge. I

The race starts on the birthday of Corporal Lee Scott, who was tragically killed in 2009 whilst deployed to Afghanistan. His widow Nikki , mum of Brooke and Kai, set up the Scottys Little Soldiers charity to support and put a smile on the face of the children left behind when a parent is killed in service of their country. The goal is to finish on the 10th July, 10 years to the date Lee Scott was killed. I felt compelled to make sure this anniversary gets the greatest level of commitment I could give.

I will be covering 250 miles a day with a goal to complete it in 12 days and will need a 6 man support crew, which will include mechanic/masseur/chef

I am new to cycling, only taking up the pursuit in 2017 after the demands of his previous sporting career and military service took their toll on the body. Cycling presents a new challenge, but one that I have embraced and in a short space of time, so far made rapid progress. In September 2018, I qualified by completing 355 miles in 24 hours. Now I want to go to the next level in the ultimate European bike race challenge, in the process highlighting the Scottys cause and to give the children much needed support. Letting them know they are not forgotten.

The total cost for the support and event costs are an £8000 budget. I need companies and individuals to help achieve this goal and to raise further funds for this fantastic charity.

We will need to raise the funding to cover:

2 x Vehicles (Motorhome & Van)

Ferry crossings Dover-Calais & Santander-Portsmouth

Food for 5 persons 14 days

Fuel for 2 vehicles

Bike spare parts & spare wheels

There are multiple opportunities available in return for sponsorship by companies and individuals

Examples of which are:

Vehicle branding for sponsorship

Sponsor logo on Rider jersey

Sponsor logo on Crew clothing
