Dean Stott

Dean Stott


1 Charter Square,
Bury St Edmunds,
IP33 3FD


SBS soldier. World Record breaker. Charity fundraiser. Mental health advocate.

Everybody has heard the SAS motto that who dares wins, but special forces warrior Dean Stott also lives his life by another powerful mantra: the relentless pursuit of excellence. In 16 years of service, Dean rose to the top of Britain’s fighting force, taking part of some of the most daring and dangerous operations in the war on terror, then after having never cycled more than a few miles and not even owning a bike he decided to cycle the Pan American Highway, a 14,000 mile route that stretches from Argentina to Alaska, crossing some of the most dangerous passages in the world.

On 12 May 2018, after 99 days, 12 hours and 56 minutes of cycling, Dean crossed the finish line in Prudhoe Bay, smashing the former world record by 17 days and achieving another world record along the way with the fastest time to cycle the length of South America.

Dean proved to himself and all the doubters that the tenacity, bravery, and downright doggedness that saw him rise to the top of the SBS is still ingrained in all he does and will no doubt fuel his next challenge. Join Dean as he talks you through the highs and lows of his adventures so far. Expect to be shocked, entertained and truly inspired.

"Dean’s journey from the Special Boat Service to intrepid adventurer is truly inspirational." - Sir Ranulph Fiennes
