The world-famous Danny MacAskill and his video team were filming for three days recently around Dunbar Harbour. As forecast, Sunny Dunny’s weather was benign and bright: Hollywood-style. Filming went well and many people saw his stunts however everyone was discouraged from sharing videos until Danny has officially published this new video on Youtube.

Quoting Santa Cruz Bicycles: “Danny MacAskill's roots stretch all the way back to his beginnings in Scotland on the Isle of Skye. He began his life on two wheels as a bike mechanic but realized that wrenching was quickly getting in the way of challenging time on his trials bike, so he ditched the shop life to hone his riding full-time. Since that decision he's been featured in television ads, published Youtube videos that earned millions of views, and gone on tour to show people around the world new ways to showcase riding a bike.”

Danny’s profile has soared. His current viral success totals over 350 million views on YouTube alone. Danny is also a live show favourite, consistently drawing huge crowds, desperate to see some of his best known tricks in a live environment.  http://www.dannymacaskill.co.uk/

Photo shows Danny doing a forward somersault as the bridge opens. Please don’t attempt any of his stunts; the Harbour is not a skate park!
