    Best Rider Ever?

    Opinions will vary, but this guy has amazing skill, ability and creativity.

    I defy you to figure out what he is pulling off first time through. Just amazing stuff.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    He is on a street trials bike. Anyone know how much those bikes weight? I'm thinking anywhere from 10-15 lbs.

    I bet those rims are heavy 48 spoke to put up with the abuse. plus the frame has to weigh almost 5lbs.

    I would still give the nod to Ruben Alcantara though..

    Unfortunately his section is split into two parts but hey it's free

    This kid is sick. He's truly mixing it up. Ryan Leech would be proud.

    Ryan Leech just got blown out of the water. I like how this guy actually rides his bike and doesn't just hop around. Backflip off the tree? Cuckoo.

    Anyone reading this thread, I would watch the two posted by Leethal before you watch the first one... Otherwise you'll be somewhat disappointed. The first one of Danny Macaskill is amazing. Don't get me wrong, the other guys are good. But Danny has absolute control over that bike; he's at the next level.

    Ryan Leech's style is to AVOID all hopping. He even has a video devoted to it (Manifesto)...Danny is taking everything from trials, BMX street, DH, etc and coming up with something unique. I really like the "Next Level" segment where you see him pulling tailwhips.

    Thief!

    He stole that from me. It's my normal warmup routine before riding Papago.

    Holy crap the flair off of the tree blew my frickin' mind!

    I love the ending when he jumps off the bridge to the grass tranny, and what those people must have been thinking.

    I just watched the video.....for about the 30th time. I would sell my soul to have that style.

    Speaking of selling ones soul, where can I go to arrange that transaction? Not necessarily for biking but it's gotta get me something right?

    MacAskill!

    MacAskill is the man. Watching him ride makes me either want to go out and ride or kill myself.
