So I’m at this Korean restaurant with a friend, and he asks me, “Have you heard of Danny Macaskill? He does things with bikes that are impossible.”
I thought it must be the kimchi talking. After I saw this video, I now know he speaks the truth. I also think I’m the last guy on earth to find out about Danny. Interwebs you have failed me yet again.
About Danny Macaskill:
Danny MacAskill is a professional street trials rider for Inspired Bicycles Ltd, born and raised in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
On April 19th, 2009 the then 23 year old released a 5:30 minute street trials video on YouTube set to ‘The Funeral’ by the Band of Horses that was about to change his life. Filmed and produced by his flat mate Dave Sowerby, “Inspired Bicycles” got a few hundred thousand views over night and as of today has been watched well over 28 million times – the world went crazy for Danny.
