DANNY MACASKILL is the most prominent pro rider of this style, basically the mountain biking equivalent of street skateboarding. In this video he’s riding through the rural landscape around Edinburgh, Scotland, turning an ordinary commute to meet his parents into an extraordinary journey. What I love about this kind of riding and street skateboarding is the creativity in envisioning how different obstacles can be used. The skill and precision to pull it all off is unbelievable. Stick around for the extra few minutes at the end to see some outtakes…it’s good to know even someone at his level doesn’t pull things off without a lot of effort.
