Bicycle. Tricks. Wow.
Thirteen million views. The instantly famous spiky fence ride.
My jaw dropped twice watching the below video, and hung pretty low the rest of the time. New York Times just did a feature on this former bike mechanic, now sudden youtube superstar fielding sponsorship offers left and right. It’s a new media fairy tale.
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.
