Dream The Impossible – The Story Of A Unique Race Team

Talan Skeels-Piggins was paralysed from the chest down after a motorcycle accident in March 2003.

Doctors gave him a 30% chance of survival and told him he would never walk again if he did live.

And yet he won the title of 2015 World Champion 600cc (Paralysed category) at the Bridgestone World Cup in Vallelunga, Italy.

He is a part of the world’s first disabled motorcycle race, and their journey is now the subject of a 90 minute documentary.

Dream The Impossible captures four unique and inspiring stories in a life-affirming message to never give up, as it follows the team’s first season together as they compete against able bodied riders on the very machine that disabled them.

Talan is a former Royal Navy fighter controller.

He is the first paraplegic in the history of motor-racing to gain an ACU Road Race licence and compete against able-bodied racers.

In 2011 he founded “The Bike Experience”, a charity established to help motorcycle riders who are now paraplegic to ride again.

He also competed for Great Britain at the 2010 Winter Paralympics in the men’s slalom, giant slalom and Super-G.

The film – Dream The Impossible – premieres at The Curzon Cinema, in Soho London on the 5th May.
