Bartle Bogle Hegarty's Kevin Brown is close to concluding a far greater challenge - the 2,872-kilometre cycle ride between Athens and London (http://cycleslam2012.com). Cycling in a team led by the rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio, Brown has more than held his own among the professional athletes while raising thousands of pounds for charity. And the word from the mountains is that he has managed a few 2am finishes in the restaurants and bars along the way. All being well, Brown will be back in London by 18 May to prepare for his 50th birthday celebrations ten days later.
Forget those exercise lightweights who completed the London Marathon.
