Scottish stunt supremo struts his stuff in South Africa

Scottish stunt supreme Danny MacAskill is back with a new video, this time showcasing his trials skills around the South African city of Cape Town.

If you’ve seen his previous films, including the one shot in Edinburgh that catapulted him to fame via YouTube, you’ll know what to expect – some top-notch bike-handling skills and at times jaw-dropping stunts.

As usual, the six and a half minute film is beautifully shot, and combines MacAskill showing his stuff on the city’s streets before heading out to the surrounding coastline to try some tricks among the boulders and rocks on the coast.

Enjoy!

 

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Excellent riding, but a bummer of a sound track.

Danny is the man for this sort of thing! I can just about manage a bunny hop onto a kerb - sometimes!  3

Meant to ask... What goes on at the rear mech on these trials bikes? Not fixed - can freewheel - but also pedal backwards? What's that all about?  39

Maybe that rear mech is simply a chain tensioner...

Massively impressed as always with Danny's riding, but I wasn't moved by this video. The cinematography, music, and editing aren't a patch on his last production (that really was perfection!).
