Bike Handling Skills - Danny Macaskill

17 Aug 2011 15:15

I am not sure if this vid has been posted before and not sure if this is the right forum, so I apologize in advance if either are incorrect, but here is a new video from Danny Macaskill and his crazy bike handling skills:

Watched him last night on a tv programme called "Concrete Circus". He is without doubt the best cyclist in the world.

Saw that video a few days ago. The laws of physics do not apply to him.

This is simply not correct.

If you watch concrete circus you will see the crazy trials area he had built in his back garden when he looks about 8 years old.

His body control and apparent sense of spatial awareness are mindblowing. I wonder how well his spatial abilities would translate to other disciplines.

I wonder if he is more kind of Rodney Mullen or Frankie Hill.

Danny is a combination I think. Full of technique but also manful and very brave.
No doubt he and his bones will pay for this when he gets older.
At least he makes a lot of money. :D

Oh, I see Frankie is still skating (again). lol
He must have titan-knees right now.

yes I think you're right, I was in the same high school as him and I am sure I remember him having the bike in school every so often, although I dont remember much these days.

This guy has unbelievable bike handling skills but what he does in this video makes me think he's a little soft in the head! WOW!

He practices on street stuff very close to where I live. When I had a BMX I tried some of it and failed miserably.
