November 17th 2010 – The wait is finally over! The new project that follows Danny ‘MegaSkill’ MacAskill’s YouTube hit is now live!
Combining the riding style of trial bike, mountain bike and BMX-street, check out the awesome tricks unveiled in the new video that follows Danny on his journey from the urban streets of Edinburgh back to his hometown in the Isle of Skye.
As good as the first one? Not so much? Chime in here…
It is hard to believe that it has been barely more than a year since Inspired Bicycles-Rider Danny posted a video on YouTube that was to change his life. Over night, the video got a few hundred thousand views and as of today has been watched well over 20 million times – the world went crazy for Danny. If you’ve lived under a rock and haven’t seen it yet or can’t get enough of it, you can watch it here in high resolution: http://www.watch26.tv/video/2628/
Since the video went live, things progressed really fast – Danny found himself featured in the New York Times, was nominated for the Action Sportsperson of the Year Category of the Laureus World Sports Awards this year and has now finally found the time to start shooting a new video.
He is super stoked about the way things are going for him: “I still can’t believe the first video reached so many people that actually liked it and passed it on. I mean, even Lance Armstrong thought it was a must see! Now I get to make another, even crazier video and basically ride my bike as a job. It doesn’t get any better than this.”
