International Speaker

In August 2016, he became the first cyclist to complete a solo, non-stop, 1 000km attempt through the French Alps in less than 47 hours while raising over R1.2m for charity.

Yet, only 3 years earlier he was declared dead in a harrowing cycling accident in the Italian Alps, shattering his body against a rock embankment at over 60kms an hour, breaking 22 bones. He was told cycling again would be impossible. Astonishingly, only one year and six surgeries later, he returned to the Alps and finished the 140km alpine race that nearly claimed his life. This was his first Im’possible Tour.

How did he go from death and no less than 10 surgeries to date, to conquering the Alps and breaking records in such a short period of time?

This is the astonishing story of miracle cyclist, Laureus Sport for Good Ambassador and international speaker, Grant Lottering, who through hope, courage and perseverance, overcame the impossible, and continues to inspire thousands all over the world. His annual Im’possible Tour™ has raised almost R2m for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and reached an audience of over 17m in broadcast, publishing and online media. He has shared his story “From death to the top of the Alps” in over 10 countries at conferences and corporate events incl UK, Singapore, Holland, Belgium, Germany, France, Zambia, Namibia and South Africa.
