"Don't ever give up as you never know what's around the corner."
On 1st February 2014, James became the first and only person to have rowed across the Atlantic Ocean, successfully summited Mount Everest and cycled 18,000 miles around the world. Seven years prior to all this, he was recovering from a serious motorcycle accident that left him with broken legs as well as a severely broken and dislocated ankle. The prognosis was that he was likely to suffer a permanent walking impairment and would certainly not be able to continue the active physical lifestyle he had enjoyed up to that point. James talks with candour and enthusiasm about his response to that challenge and the way he has, in his words, ‘without doing anything special’, set about physical tasks that most of us can only imagine experiencing.
