I saw this man on The One Show a short time ago: Danny Macaskill (You tube). His ability is amazing.

Great stuff. I remember getting Trik Trax [for Christmas] when I was a lot younger. [It might have been my little brother actually!]

I saw him too, and was similarly impressed.

Awesome as they say, and very entertaining.

Must say I found it incredibly boring and switched off half way through!

No soul I guess.

Now watching McGuiness on the Mountain Course last week had me totally riveted!

Boring!!!!! ??? I've never seen anything like it on a bike!

I watched it on the One Show and was impressed with his ability. However I don't remember the usual warning "Don't try this at home"... I thought the bit where he rode along the gun on the tank was brilliant.

Come to think of it not many people keep tanks at home.

I wonder if he will still be doing the same in later life. Evel Knievel did, and look where that ended!.

We have a BMX and skateboard park plus an area laid out for Parkour (Free Running) nearby, and seeing some of the 'kids' performing there and elsewhere in the city, make you wonder where health and safety comes into it. If you want to see some action, then look up Parkour on YouTube.

morddwyd, I agree, it is computer generated rubbish.

His bike costs about £3600, one of his replica helmets costs about £72.

If you were young, fit, no fear and had the money to practice all year round you many be able to get half as good.

I also like the ad for Red Bull when the guys 'fly' down the mountainside in winged suits.
