Danny MacAskill performs loop the loop in front of the London Eye

Trials star rides 5m loop on floating barge

Last night saw trials star Danny MacAskill pull a loop the loop in front of the London Eye as part of a Microsoft product launch. 

Either side of the loop, which was similar to the one used in his Imaginate YouTube flick, MacAskill also pushed out a few more of his signature moves including an impeccably controlled nose manual.

"This is one of the biggest setups I have ever ridden and the location is amazing. To have a 5m loop floating on a barge is something surreal. I always look for new challenges and the chance to ride this massive loop with the help of Cortana is another achievement I can be proud of,” said MacAskill.
