Speakers from the Edge
Mark has taken on numerous world records in ultra-endurance. He cycled the globe 82 days faster than the previous time, pedalled the length of the Americas and recently smashed the Cairo to Cape Town record.

Off the bike, Mark has filmed numerous BBC documentaries, presented for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and written two best-selling books
