What can’t this guy do on a bike? I wonder about that every time I watch one of his videos. He is one of those riders that, not only pushes the limits of the sport, but makes it look so easy that a bunch of other people have laid out the money to get a bike and start hurling themselves off of urban structures. This is a good place to herald the filmmaker as well. MacAskill may be sending it off of castle walls, but it takes a skilled filmmaker to capture that motion into a video. The action, the composition and the lighting all come together to make this video a real pleasure to watch.
