Mountain-bike ace Danny MacAskill’s latest video Industrial
Revolutions – shot for a Channel 4 TV documentary about urban sports – has
notched up 400,000 hits in just one week.
In the five minute film, the former
Edinburgh bike-shop worker can be seen pulling a series of almost unbelievable
stunts, jumps, bounces and flips in a derelict industrial train yard.
Others were so taken aback by the stunts
they assumed the film was a fake or had at least been massively edited.
Channel 4’s Concrete Circus teamed up young
film-makers with MacAskill, Spanish skateboarder Kilian Martin, BMX biker
Keelan Phillips and parkour or free-running experts Paul Joseph and Phil Doyle.
