Danny MacAskill may be one of the most creative and skilled trials bikers in the world, and his Instagram has been a testament to that over the last few days. MacAskill, a Scottish rider, shared some of the mountain biking work he’s done, with a pair of wild tricks that used trees as obstacles.
He’s working to promote his new tricks video on YouTube, “This and That,” which you should watch if you’re interested in these styles of biking (mountain biking and trails cycling) or you just want to see something amazing. But these two bite-sized clips are pretty freaking awesome.
Here’s a look at the first one, where he jumps off his bike, over a tree and back onto his bike. And then there’s one where he rode up a tree, jumped off it and stalled on another tree before landing on the ground cleanly. Just absurd.
