Meet death-defying Grant Lottering

Grant Lottering’s cycling career could have ended when he slammed into a wall at over 60kms an hour during a cycling race. The impact shattered his body. A year after he was told he would never ride again he was back on the bike with a new goal, to make the impossible into the I’m-possible.
