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.

I did a step up from a mini kicker onto an 11 ft high stack of boxes, when running up to it it definitely didn't look possible - but it felt amazing to pull off.

I've been riding for years, doing big drops becomes kind of normal. Starting to feel the big hits these days though..

It's just the same as manualing a hard tail, you just have to work at finding the right balance point, and trying not to get caught up between the back wheel and the saddle

The twister board was good fun to ride, I'd love to find some moving obstacles that I could ride in the street
