Mark Beaumont first made fame aged 23 for an 18,000 mile round-the-world bike race, where he smashed the previous World Record by a staggering 82 days. In 2015 Beaumont rode the length of Africa at a pace of 160 miles a day, taking 18 days off the previous record.
Off the bike, he has ocean rowed through the Arctic and survived after capsizing whilst rowing the Atlantic. He continues to do extreme adventures every year.
His documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries, and he also presented the BBC’s coverage in the build up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Beaumont was named “Top Scot” in 2011 and has received an Honorary Doctorate in Laws form the University of Dundee, where he is also currently Rector.
