International Motivational Speaker

Ultra-Endurance Cyclist and Laureus Sport for Good Ambassador, Grant Lottering’s remarkable comeback from death on 21 July 2013 to conquering the French Alps, Pyrenees and now South Africa continues to astonish the medical profession and audiences alike.

In August 2016, Grant completed a solo, non-stop,  1,000km ride through the French Alps in under 50 hours. September 2018, his 4th Im’possible Tour in aid of Laureus, he cycled the length of the French Pyrenees and Alps non-stop in less than 72 hrs, a world first. He covered 23 mountains and climbed 21,484m, while only sleeping for 3 hrs 40 min during his attempt. Described as astonishing and remarkable, he succeeded in spite undergoing 2 shoulder surgeries as recent as February 2018.

In May 2019 he successfully completed his 5th Im’possible Tour, widely recognised as the most brutal solo fundraising ride ever attempted in South Africa. He rode 1,314km from Patensie in the Eastern Cape to Paarl in the Western Cape in 66hrs 12min, over 17 mountains climbing 12,200m. Of the 1,314km, 976km was off road. He slept a total of 2hrs 50min during this non-stop attempt.

What makes his accomplishments so remarkable, is that he has undergone 10 surgeries 2013 – 2018 as a result of his accident. In addition he had to overcome emergency cancer surgery late in 2016. His remarkable story of survival and overcoming has attracted much media attention, locally and world-wide, reaching over 32 million people through broadcast, print and online media.

He has shared his story ’From Death to the Top of the Alps‘ with audiences in over 11 countries around the world. Inspiring audiences to fly high in the face of adversity, he is living proof that one can achieve unbelievable levels of success while persevering in the face of challenges and storms. Grant Lottering has overcome incredible odds, refusing to give up, and continues to do what most believe to be impossible.
