The first question everyone asks when they watch Danny MacAskill’s Inspired Bicycles or Way Back Home videos is, “how did he do that?”. Well, now you can find out, as the Scottish street trials star has made a series of four how-to videos for clothing sponsors DigDeep.
In the first episode, ‘Megaskill’ explains how to pull a 360 using shots from his Streets of London clip. “It’s great to get the opportunity to share some of what I do with lots of people,” he says. “I love riding my bike and love talking about it, so this was tons of fun.
“Plus, the tricks aren’t your usual bunny hops and wheelies – the clips explain some more advanced tricks that I love doing. I hope you enjoy and don’t break anything trying!” You can watch the video below:
To coincide with the release of the first how-to video, DigDeep have released a limited edition line of Danny MacAskill T-shirts and hoodies. Visit www.digdeep.com for more details.
