Danny MacAskill, a 23 year-old from Edinburgh, Scotland has become world famous for his bike riding skills. Danny has taught himself to backflip off a tree, ride across railings with nasty looking spikes, and bike across three story buildings. This dude even does a 360 going backwards down steep concrete stairs.
Amazingly, Danny - who has been biking like this since childhood - has never seriously injured himself during his stunts. His video, called Inspired Bicycles, has gotten over a million views on YouTube and has allowed MacAskill to earn enough from live shows and sponsorships to quit his day job at a bike shop. Who says hard work doesn’t pay off?
Here’s the video that started it all. If you ignore the lame background music and slow opening, you’ll get to Danny doing some crazy stunts around the one minute mark. You will be impressed.
