See Cape Town through the eyes of a street trials pro rider, Danny MacAskill. For Danny, the city is one enormous playground!
“Danny MacAskill is a professional street trials rider for Inspired Bicycles Ltd, born and raised in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland.
On April 19th, 2009 the then 23 year old released a 5:30 minute street trials video on YouTube set to ‘The Funeral’ by the Band of Horses that was about to change his life. Filmed and produced by his flat mate Dave Sowerby, “Inspired Bicycles” got a few hundred thousand views over night and as of today has been watched well over 28 million times – the world went crazy for Danny. The video featured bike stunts on a never before performed level, but as visitor of his website you probably know what we’re talking about.”
