Danny MacAskill's very literal mountain biking

Danny MacAskill is a phenomenon on two wheels and, along with his sponsor Red Bull, he has created some amazing films like Imaginate, Industrial Revolutions, Epecuen and Way Back Home in recent years. And his latest one, The Ridge, which sees him and filmmaker Stu Thomson return to their homeland on the Isle of Skye and face up to the 1000 metre drop of The Cuillin Ridge, is one of the craziest and most beautiful yet. 

As MacAskill told The Independent: “Ever since I was a kid growing up on Skye I have always dreamt about riding a bike up on the Cuillin ridge. The project took a lot of planning and was probably one of the most physically demanding films I have ever worked on. It was definitely a labour of love though as I wanted to show off the island for how it is and make everyone who lives there proud to be from this amazing part of the world.”
