BikeRadar Live: Animal Relentless Bike Tour and Danny MacAskill

YouTube star joins trials legend Martyn Ashton and dirt jumper Sam Pilgrim

UK trials rider Danny MacAskill has taken YouTube by storm this week with his breathtaking street riding skills.


He normally rides for The Clan team but will be be coming to BikeRadar Live as a guest rider on the Animal Relentless Bike Tour, where he’ll join trials legend Martyn Ashton and dirt jump sensation Sam Pilgrim.

In his latest video, MacAskill nails some of the most technically difficult and hard to comprehend moves on two wheels, combining flatland BMX style with the catlike balance of a trials rider.

He pulls a backflip off a tree, rides across the spikes of a metal fence and masters the bunnyhop tailwhip.

Watch the video now:


To see Danny perform his trademark blend of street and trials riding, and watch the Animal Relentless Bike Tour boys in actions, come to BikeRadar Live on 30-31 May.
