Danny is originally from the Isle of Skye, but he has never tried to conquer his home place. Back in 2008, he moved to Glasgow to work in a bike shot. The video got online and Danny immediately became a sensation in the YouTube world. The stunts he performed seemed almost impossible and from there, it was just a small step to get sponsorship from Red Bull.
Last year he released the video, called Imaginate, that has more than 26 milion views! It was in the making process for two years and is also 7 minutes long. This video, however, was shot inside, but it is still amazing and mesmerizing to watch.

After this amount of publicity he got from doing what he loves the most, he recently told the Independent: “Never in a million years did I believe, I would be pulling off stunts for a living. Since I was a little boy, I’ve had bike heroes and loved to ride, but it’s not that I use it to express myself. Its just that riding is what makes me tick. My brain is tuned to create obstacles and I get kick out of solving them on my bike.” He also said, that it was one of his biggest dreams to come back home and ride a bike up on this extremely breakneck ridge.
Kudos to you, Danny MacAskill, for showing us another amazing piece of the world with your incredible set of skills!
