Inspired Bicycles - Danny MacAskill April 2009
Filmed over the period of a few months in and around Edinburgh by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill features probably the best collection of street/street trials riding ever seen. There's some huge riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a trials bike.
Danny MacAskill's mini film, Inspired Bicycles, is third in YouTube's worldwide most viewed on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old street trials biker jumps across roofs, off roofs and even along a spiky railing in the video.
He told BBC Scotland he took it as "the best compliment" that some people thought his stunts were fake.
