Undoubtedly, one of the biggest names today in action sports is Danny MacAskill. He is a professional street trials cyclist, from from Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
Danny began documenting his exploits in 2009 and is one of the world’s most fearless trial cyclists today. His biking skills have taken him across the globe, from Argentina to Taiwan. But his most notable adventure sees him return to his native and embark on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.
Danny tells, “Ever since I was a kid growing up on Skye I have always dreamt about riding a bike up on the Cuillin Ridge.”
Danny’s adventure was captured in thrilling cinematic fashion by Stu and his team at Cut Media. The crew spent ten days on the shoot, enduring long treks and tricky terrain, to capture the best moments.
The 7.5 mile ride has seen him pull off some impressive stunts and quickly became a sensation on YouTube. He even managed to scale the ‘Inaccessible Pinnacle’ that is difficult to reach.
Thanks to Danny, everyone who lives there is proud to be from this amazing part of the world.
The video, titled ‘The Ridge’ is still viral today with more than 40 million views!
