Daniel “Danny” MacAskill is a Scottish trials cyclist, from Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. He works professionally as a street trials pro rider for Inspired Bicycles Ltd. He released April 2009, a five-and-a-half-minute street trials video, filmed by his flatmate Dave Sowerby, on YouTube on the 19 April 2009 to popular acclaim and widespread media attention. The video features stunts performed by MacAskill set to ‘The Funeral’ by Band of Horses.
Filmed over the period of a few months in and around Edinburgh by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill (more info at www.dannymacaskill.com) features probably the best collection of street/street trials riding ever seen. There’s some huge riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a trials bike.
