Two Danny’s : Things you won’t believe are possible on a bike…

October 19, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

First up, some seriously impressive tricks from Danny MacAskill.. wending his way homewards to see his old dad somewhere up in a very picturesque Scotland.

I’ve posted Danny’s amazing videos before, and he just seems to get more and more inventive. Someone on Facebook has noted that some of these tricks took more than 300 takes, which perhaps isn’t really surprising, but I don’t think detracts from the crazy skills on show…

And the second Danny, this time Atherton. I can hardly watch this one…

How on earth you learn to land these jumps and stunts without going through a serious amount of pain, or know instinctively that you’ve got the skill and confidence to pull them off is totally beyond me…

The two jumps at about 2.3o mins in followed by the slaloming though the trees and the series of banked turns, and the scary rocky bit after the wooden slatted jump… There must be 100 easy things to get badly wrong on that descent, and he gets them all spot on. Outstanding…

I’ve been “proper” mountain biking a few times in Wales with friends. It was fantastic fun and I think we all felt at times like we were showing a few MTB skills… But believe me its was like riding around on the local football pitch with stabilisers compared to this…
