Miracle Cyclist Attempts World's Toughest Solo Fundraising Ride

He's survived a near-fatal cycling accident, and now Grant Lottering is gearing up for his 4th Im'Possible Tour – a gruelling solo fundraising cycle in the French Alps.

Ninety-six hours is all miracle cyclist Grant Lottering has to conquer La Marmotte Granfondo (one of the world's toughest amateur cycling races) – 10 times! In July this year he will attempt to cycle over 40 mountains, climbing a staggering 44 700m over a distance of 1 800km, in under 96 hours – non-stop.

See more about his monster task below:

At 174km with 5 000m of climbing, the route includes the Col du Glandon (22km), Col du Télégraphe (13km) and Col du Galibier (17km), finishing on the summit of the famous Alpe d'Huez climb (13km). 

Now in his fourth year, Grant tackles these annual solo ultra-endurance rides to raise funds for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation that financially supports more than 20 registered community projects countrywide. 

* Im'Possible Tour IV – The World's Toughest Solo Fundraising Ride – is proudly supported by Mercedes-Benz South Africa.
