Danny MacAskill: The Ridge
Handling a mountain bike like Harry Potter handles a broomstick, 28-year-old Danny MacAskill is out with a new video dubbed ‘The Ridge,’ showcasing his amazing skills along with the beautiful Scottish island of Skye.
The treacherous rocky cliffs of Cuillin Ridge get reduced to mere putty in MacAskill’s hands and feet as he risks life and limb, bunny-hopping from one edge to the next. The 7:38 mini-film opens with him rowing his boat as even the local seals seem to understand greatness is about to happen. It’s apparently the first time anyone has tackled that particular terrain with a bike, and we can see why. Plus the fact that MacAskill is keeping his cool with either a helicopter or a very fast drone buzzing by him to get the footage, and well, the whole thing is just very impressive.
