Danny Macaskill is a Scottish stunt rider known for his crazy cycling skills and breathtaking bike acrobatics, the videos with his incredible moves racking up millions of views on youtube and making him “the most famous stunt rider on the Internet.”

The 28-year old released a brand new film called ‘The Ridge’, a death-defying video showing him cycling along the Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye, the place where he was born and grew up. Danny “Mad-Skills” MacAskill and his team spent 10 days putting the film together, creating seven and a half minutes of stunning footage.

Starting with a quiet, meditative scene, the video quickly escalates as Danny ditches the boat and heads out on his journey. The rocky terrain, huge cliff drops and unforgiving lines really put his famous bike handling skills to the limit, all on an stunningly beautiful background, the Isle of Skye’s beautiful and treacherous landscape.

Produced by Cut Media, the film makes good use of multiple cameras, a GoPro camera MacAskill wears on his helmet, and drone footage.
