Video: Danny MacAskill interview

Street riding star on stunt wasps and that YouTube clip

If you haven’t already heard of Danny MacAskill then you’ve presumably been hidden under a rock for the whole of 2009.

The street trials star burst onto the scene as a result of his YouTube video in which he pulled off tricks we never thought were humanly possible.

Since starring in the clip, which has now been viewed over 12 million times, he's been hot property, appearing at shows including BikeRadar Live and in TV adverts for the likes of Volkswagen.

MacAskill was in London earlier this month at the launch of Kenny Belaey’s Big Time, a trials show which follows Kenny on a five-week trek as he visits Spain, Britain and the US to uncover the roots of the sport, meet its founders and see who’s pushing the scene forward.

In this interview, he talks about his part in the new show, appearing in the VW advert with a stunt wasp, and sitting in his pants watching himself on YouTube – all while fellow riders in the background do their best to put him off.
