In 1985 the seaside town of Epecuén in Argentina became completely submerged. Its residents left and the world forgot it was there. After spending 25 years underwater, it's now re-emerged and Epecuén sees Danny take his biking back to the roots of trials riding, lighting up the deserted town with his talent, as he explores the forgotten streets and pushes the limits as the world's premier freestyle trials rider.
The tricks he pulls are pretty standard for a Jedi Knight or perhaps a lesser Demigod. If he were a mere mortal I would be impressed.
Danny keep on making these vids cause your riding blows minds and can be somewhat educational at the same time
But the illustrious, Flash-based Red Bull video playeer offers no cache for rewinding, nor does it seem to load the video till the end while it's paused. Someone thought of this retarded "streaming-only" idea for non-live content a long time ago and it makes my blood boil. Of course, the fine peoples of Pinkbike, Vimeo and the like have finally moved to HTML5 (which neither suffers from this idiotic "feature", nor is it forcibly Flash-based), but oh no, Red Bull content is "exclusive". How'd it look if they didn't use a branded player. They don't seem to have noticed that a useless player won't quite serve their marketing intentions when a viewer can't reach the actual content.
Glad I could comment on something utterly irrelevant instead of the video itself. Which was fantastic - the little I've seen of it before my tempers ran short...
Nose bump to front flip?
Sublime aesthetics, this is pure art, whoever choose that haunting place is a genius. And about Danny, well one of those persons that should just be immortal.
...ease back RedBull, let it be a work of riding art not a 10 minute commercial
I would much rather him just go out and ride street, instead of having to make a story out of his videos and try to adapt to strange, foreign surroundings.
His best video is still his first (The youtube version, when Red Bull uploaded it and removed “Funerals” it took so much away from it).
Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but some of these features are clearly modified to fit Danny's purpose. This doesn't make it any less impressive though. Look at the metal structure at 7:15 for example.
Easy viral on youtube, 7-10 million hits no problem.
Instead you made a half documentary, half trials video that will likley be forgotten in a week because the riding doesn't start for the first 2 minutes. Next time don't try to ram a culture or story down people's throats, if they find it interesting they can search for the information themselves.
