Team Name: Marsh-Mallows
Dan Marsh (United Kingdom)
Matt Prior (United Kingdom)
Mike Prior (United Kingdom)
Marsh-Mallows is a registered Tour Operator based in Mallorca attracting cyclists mainly from the UK. Our background is in hospitality & sports and we have combined the two to create cycling trips with a bit of a difference.
We create and manage cycling events & challenges of varying scales mainly in Mallorca.
We organise trips to a number of sportives both here & in Europe - 300km of the Vätternrundan in Sweden being the highlight! We also run private bespoke cycling holidays as well as a number of luxury cycling holidays in Mallorca.
What remains constant with Marsh-Mallows is that our trips tend to be holidays not training camps. We use wonderful hotels and our holidays are ideal for couples, friends and non cyclists. We create fully supported rides, with personal touches. Hairpin bends, sweeping descents & challenging climbs along quiet Mallorcan roads... warm spring temperatures and regular connections in & out of Palma. We desperately try to avoid the Hi-dee-Hi style transfers or evening dinners with people you dont want to sit with and you get to experience true island life with people who live & cycle here all year round.
Our aim is to ensure that you return home relaxed and inspired by the cycling, the luxury hotel & the island.

The JAG Foundation's mentoring, coaching, knowledge and sport programmes target alcohol and drugs head on by demonstrating the rewards of an alternative, positive lifestyle, bringing hope to escape their surroundings, and trying to place them out of reach of gangsterism and the resulting hopeless spiral of criminal behavior. Using sport as a catalyst to teach children to engage in physical activity, absorbing its values and benefits, in order to produce holistically healthy individuals who believe in themselves and their future. The Foundation has the expert skills and experience, the national reach (coaching the coaches structures), the transparency and measurement and the proven success to make this the most efficient and effective use of donor funding.

The LumoHawk Foundation is a small non-profit charity organization, currently in the final steps of being formerly registered. Started 3 years ago by Joel Stransky and Robbie Nilsen the charity raises funds for underprivileged children with a focus on educational and sporting needs.
It is the belief of all involved in managing this small charity that all children should grow up inspired and with a sense of hope, and an education is an important part of this process.
The focus remains the same today. The foundation assists a number of orphanages with the educational costs of the children as well as providing training for many of the "house Moms" in order for these special ladies to be able to begin the educational process of the young children at an early age.
The Foundation also provides a few tertiary education bursaries and has assisted in one or two special needs cases. The LumoHawk Foundation also assists in buying essentials for the kids, such as mattresses, clothing, blankets and even Christmas presents, when the need arises.
Many of the children supported are AIDS orphans and in turn many, but not all, are HIV positive and are on anti-retroviral medication.
The foundation is run and managed by the directors and a couple of very special volunteers. This ensures that there are almost no administrative costs and all monies collected go directly to the worthy causes.
