James Golding

Endurance Cyclist   .   United Kingdom

James Golding is an endurance cyclist and the current seven-day world record holder.

In the past decade, James has overcome and achieved more than most would in a lifetime. His battle against cancer in 2008, where he was given less than a 5% chance of survival, was just the beginning. James has gone on to cycle many of the world’s toughest events, raising more than £3m for cancer charities and suffering countless setbacks along the way. But one thing has always remained: his drive and determination.

In 2017, James rode 1,766.2 miles in one week to break the 7-day Guinness World Record. His next challenge: being the first Brit to win Race Across America.

Meet the man himself

Q&A

Who motivates you most?

All the people that believe in me – validating that belief. And all the people that tell me I can’t do something – proving them wrong.

What got you into your sport?

In 2008, I was diagnosed with cancer. The following year, I underwent life-saving surgery. Cycling was part of my recovery. It offered me a release, a form of escapism.

Biggest sporting achievements to date?

Breaking the Guinness World Record for the most amount of miles cycled in seven days – 1766.2 miles in June 2017.

What’s your ultimate sporting ambition?

To win the Race Across America in 2020.

What does 2019 have in store for you?

London-2-Paris and London-2-Paris-London, the dates are still to be confirmed. Then Race Across the West in June and trying to break my own Guinness Seven-Day World Record in September.

What difference will Rainmaker’s sponsorship make to you?

It’s not the difference that it will make, it’s the difference that its’ already made.

“I just want to inspire other people to ride and show that the human body is capable of amazing things.”

“Cancer is the best thing that ever happened to me.” Whilst this isn’t the usual opinion associated with the disease, James Golding thinks this due to the fact that cancer changed his life completely.”
