Danny MacAskill has always impressed us with his forward thinking (and mind blowing) videos. TWC had the pleasure of meeting the man himself at Eurobike, when he jumped over us whilst tonnes (well, quite a lot) of water was thrown at us for our ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! You can watch the video for yourself here.
We absolutely loved his Imaginate series. If you’re not familiar with the concept behind it, MacAskill‘s idea was to perform some epic acrobatic stunts on giant toys from his childhood.
Taking over two years to make, and 68 weeks to actually shoot it, he deserves a whole lot of credit for this. If you didn’t catch the episodes last year we suggest you watch them now!
Episode 1: Danny MacAskill Imaginate
Under the watchful guidance of Red Bull UK’s Head of High Performance Darren Roberts, Danny trains with world renowned mountain bike siblings ‘The Athertons’ and meets trials bike pioneer and one of Danny’s heroes Hans Rey.
Regular Gym work and physiotherapy may heal the injury over time, but it is only when Danny visits spine surgeon Dr. Robert Bray at the D.I.S.C facility that he finds a solution to combat the problem without restrictions, but at what price?
