Watch: James Golding, the man who refuses to die What does it take to go from 5% chance of survival to setting your sights on winning one of the hardest cycling races in the world? Watch below as James Golding shares his incredible journey in the latest Red Bull Media House series Way of The Wildcard.

The bite-size documentary series available to watch on Red Bull TV from today, takes an intimate look at astonishing athletes who have beaten the odds and made a name for themselves. Incredibly, James has an optimistic view of his two bouts of life-threatening cancer and getting hit by a truck at 70mph, describing it as “one of the best things that has ever happened” to him.

 

Watch below as he shares his journey so far and how he plans to use that same intense drive, determination and ambition that helped him overcome those experiences to become Britain’s first-ever winner of the prestigious Race Across America – a 12 day race that covers 3,000 miles. A feat that seemed impossible 10 years ago when James was given less than a five per cent chance of surviving emergency cancer surgery.

 

 

While COVID-19 has forced the cancellation of 2020’s edition of Race Across America, for James, the adventure is by no means over. He’s is working on creating his own cycling challenges that will keep him fit and focused. The win on RAAM is postponed, not cancelled. Follow how James and his team plan to tackle the challenge in 2021 on Instagram.

Finding it hard to stay motivated during lockdown? We’ve got some brilliant advice from James on adapting to change, staying positive and working with what you have in our blog: Lockdown life and shifting goals.

Way of the Wildcard is a Red Bull Media House series created in association with Just So and is available to watch exclusively on Red Bull TV. Watch the full ‘Way of the Wildcard’ series on Red Bull TV
