Danny grew up on the Isle of Skye where he says he had a reckless amount of freedom growing up! He got into trials biking around the age of 11 and has been progressing ever since. When he was 21 he moved to Edinburgh to start work in MacDonald cycles, lured to the city by the fun street riding. In 2009 he left MacDonald and started up a bike display team with a friend called The Clan, which enabled him to ride a bike for a living. By March 2009 there were enough bookings to keep The Clan busy for the year, but then Danny finished a small video he had been filming for the previous six months with flatmate Dave Sowerby for Inspired Bicycles. Once the video hit the internet the world went crazy for Danny MacAskill and since then he has been in demand all over the world. In 2010 Danny and Dave Sowerby filmed a second film with Red Bull called Way Back Home, a documentary about the project will air on www.redbull.com/tv on February 20th 2011.
