Inspired. Danny MacAskill from dave on Vimeo.

You may well have seen this already, it's a big hit on Youtube, but in case you haven't here's the version posted on Vimeo. It took Danny and film maker Dave Sowerby six months to film. The bit on the railings took eight hours alone.

I wouldn't claim to know anything about street trials, but in this case you don't need to be too much of an expert to know that this is something special.

Chapeaux!

Or if you prefer… Respect is due

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Wow thats impressive stuff. Ive seen some guys doing street trials around the castle park area in bristol...they are good but this blew me away. I liked the reaction of passers by and onlookers.

Where is this, edinburgh?
