Red Bull’s renowned street trial riding sensation, Danny MacAskill, is back on the web! A little more up-close and a little more personal, with a one-hour special called “MacAskill Conquers.” This must-see show will be broadcast right here on Red Bull Web TV this Sunday, February 20th at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
You don’t want to miss out on this incredible live event that will feature an evening of unimaginable footage that MacAskill has cultivated, including the two clips that made him famous.
The evening will take place at The Green Rooms at Hawke and Hunter in Edinburgh, and fifty lucky fans - who won tickets on the Internet - will be in attendance. The night will feature the premiere of a feature-length documentary about Danny’s 2010 video, ‘Way Back Home”. The documentary will take fans behind the scenes of the making of the video and include interviews with Danny’s friends from the Isle of Skye and his riding clip director, David Sowerby.
23 Million Hits and Counting
MacAskill gained major media attention with a five-and-a-half-minute You Tube street trials video, “Inspired Bicycles - Danny MacAskill April 2009” that went viral with over 23 million hits (watch it below). The video was filmed by his friend Sowerby and featured heart-pounding footage of Danny pushing the limits of his talents with progressive tricks like front and back flips off of extreme ledges, technical backwards G-Turn maneuvers and jumps across death-defying roof gaps.
Even if you have never ridden a trial bike a day in your life, you will appreciate this special showing. His riding is an art form, his videos are entertaining and his presentation is incredible. It will change the way you look at a handrail, stairway, and rooftop forever.
