Web Famous

Now here’s the video that made Danny MacAskill web famous. It features probably the best collection of street/street trials riding ever seen as Danny MacAskill took to the streets of Edinburgh for a freestyle trip around the city on his mountain.  With a video that has now heralded over 20 million views on YouTube, little did he know he’d spark an internet phenomenon. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a trials bike. Watch.
