Scottish street trials sensation Danny MacAskill has today released the follow-up to the Inspired Bicycles film that shot him to fame and has now been viewed over 20 million times on YouTube.
Way Back Home follows Danny as he travels from Edinburgh to his home in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, calling in at some incredible riding locations along the way including tourist hotspots like Edinburgh Castle and the Forth Bridge, as well as more off-the-beaten-track spots.
MegaSkill’s riding is as jaw-dropping as ever, and the cash injection from sponsors Red Bull means he now has breathtaking cinematography to complement his breathtaking moves, courtesy of his close friend and film-maker Dave Sowerby. Check it out below:
During a live Q&A session with fans yesterday afternoon, Danny talked about some of the highlights of making the film. “My favourite spot in the riding clip is probably the bakery wall ride in my local village,” he said. “I found it by walking out of the bakery with a big pasty! And then I saw the grass bank and the wall, and thought I could maybe jump up there one day.
“One of the hardest tricks in the film was probably the front flip off Edinburgh Castle as it was blowing a force 10 hooly! It was also raining really heavily. If it wasn’t for that it would’ve been easy!” For more from Danny, visit www.redbull.co.uk/waybackhome.
