Causeway is once again the Technology Partner to the Dallaglio Cycle Slam 2014, maintaining its financial and technological support for the Dallaglio Foundation. This is the third of these now famous epic charity cycling events, which have now raised over £4m since their inception in 2010, when Causeway was the founder sponsor of the event.

Causeway has provided the event with its website, Causeway Telematics to provide live rider tracking and Livestax to provide a social sharing.

This year's Dallaglio Cycle Slam is a challenging ride over 2,300km of the Italian Dolomites, Swiss and French Alps and Yorkshire moors. The money raised will support the Teenage Cancer trust and Dallaglio Foundation’s Rugby For Change Programme.

Causeway CEO Phil Brown commented:

“We are very pleased to once again be providing support to the Cycle Slam and the Dallaglio Foundation. In supporting young people its objectives are very much in line with those of our own Causeway Foundation.”

Throughout the four stages of the Cycle Slam the riders’ progress will be tracked using Causeway’s Telematics GPS tracking system, with links to live online displays. Live tracking with Telematics was used in both the 2010 and 2012 events, where it proved invaluable in managing the logistics of the event and updating sponsors.
