Danny MacAskill has returned to his homeland of the Isle of Skye for his latest video, with the fearless rider taking on “a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline” – a path never ridden before on a full suspension mountain bike.
The film was been created by Stu Thomson and his team at Cut Media, with support from sponsors Five Ten and Enve, and features stunning aerial photography. Thomson said: “It was certainly one of the most demanding locations we’ve ever filmed, but a rewarding one at the same time. Danny and I are very proud of being from Scotland so it was great to be able to show off the amazing landscape along with Danny’s incredible riding.”
In the video MacAskill provides his trademark technical skills and edge-of-your-seat stunts against this imposing and beautiful backdrop. He said: “Ever since I was a kid growing up on Skye I have always dreamt about riding a bike up on the Cuillin ridge! The project took a lot of planning and was probably one of the most physically demanding films I have ever worked on! It was definitely a labour of love though as I wanted to show off the island for how it is and make everyone who lives there proud to be from this amazing part of the world.”
