Danny MacAskill shows his mettle as he takes his tricks to disused iron works (+ video)
Latest video forms part of Channel 4's Concrete Circus programme
Street trials ace Danny MacAskill is back with a new video, shot as part of the Concrete Circus programme shown on Channel 4 yesterday evening which showcased urban sport such as parkour, also known as free running.
The Scot shot to fame in 2009 with a YouTube video shot in Edinburgh by his friend Dave Sowerby, which has now gained more than 24 million views.
The resulting publicity and queue of sponsors allowed MacAskill to give up his job as a bike mechanic to concentrate full-time on his bike stunts, including shooting an ad for Volkswagen and a music video for the band 'Doves'.
The latest video, called Industrial Revolutions, was shot in MacAskill’s native Scotland in a disused iron works and railway sidings.
