Danny MacAskill has made a name for himself with viral video smash hit after viral video smash hit showcasing his otherworldly trial bike skills in urban and Hollywood artificial type set scenarios but with COVID squashing his travel plans the Scottish biker turned domestically for his next challenge and found himself on top of 500m sheer rock slab on the Island of Skye.
“I am a big fan of rock climbing and have been inspired by the various men and woman who set new routes and test themselves on some amazing faces around the world so I set out to find some challenging Slab Rock routes on my home Island of Skye with an aim to ride them in a continuous line and test what was possible on my bike. The remote Dubh Slabs rising out of Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Black Cuilin ridge provided some of the steepest terrain I have ever ridden as well as an amazing back drop for the film.”
Great to see Danny mixing it up on his home island and reminding us he’s not a one trick pony. Dude’s got downhill skills:
