Special Forces soldier smashes record for cycling the length of South America | Guinness World Records

A former UK Special Forces soldier and friend of Prince Harry has smashed the Guinness World Records title the Fastest time to cycle the length of South America (Cartagena to Ushuaia) after riding more than 6,000 miles in 48 days.

Facing brutal conditions and grueling terrain between Ushuaia in southern Argentina and the Cartagena in northern Colombia, 40-year-old Dean Stott completed the journey in 48 days and 54 minutes – often cycling more than 100 miles a day.

He took on this epic challenge to raise money for Heads Together, a charity which supports mental health.

This is a cause close to his heart; Dean sustained a devastating knee injury whilst serving in the Special Forces which forced him to cut his military career short and left him struggling to adjust back into civilian life in his hometown of Aberdeen.
