Like most people my first exposure to Danny MacAskill was in 2009 on YouTube in watching him trying to ride his bike across the top of a wrought iron fence. After a few unsuccessful attempts he finally makes it. That first video shot by his roommate has been viewed over 31 million times on YouTube.
Since then MacAskill has gone on to showcase his mind-blowing cycling-control skills in videos such as ‘Way Back Home‘; a series of stunt recorded in Edinburgh and around his hometown in the Isle of Skye, ‘Industrial Revolutions, shot for Channel 4’s documentary Concrete Circus, and a Leica-sponsored clip where he takes on the streets of Cape Town, South Africa.
Now, MacAskill takes on the streets, sidewalks and parks of San Francisco in a clip sponsored by Remington Europe. The video is part of a series by Remington that stresses precision and control, other videos in the series include McLaren Mercedes test driver Gary Paffett, freeriding snowboarder Johno Verity, and parkour originator David Belle.
