Launceston welcomes Olympic athletes

Today's Cornish Guardian brings the news that Olympic athletes will be descending on Launceston later this month during a John O'Groats to Lands End cycle ride.

The celebs, including gold medal winning rower James Cracknell, gold medal winning cyclist Rebecca Romero and paralympic gold medallists Sarah Storey and Jodie Cundy, are expected to be heading a team of more than 600 cyclists.

On June 19th, the group will finish their penultimate stage in the town and they are after local volunteers to help them with the event. If you want to help - with anything from helping the food and massage teams to simply cheering them on - email alex.crosby@thresholdsports.co.uk or go to rideacrossbritain.com

The group are raising funds to help the UK Olympic and Paralympic teams achieve their best possible results at London 2012.
