Is there anything Danny MacAskill can’t do? http://www.bike198.com/anything-danny-macaskill-cant/ Tue, 07 Oct 2014 12:20:54 +0000 http://www.bike198.com/?p=12883 Once again, Danny MacAskill releases an insane video. This time we get to see him defy physics on a mountain bike in Isle of Skye in Scotland. Not only are the views insane but the riding is out of this world as always. When will he find a limit to his abilities?

This shouldn’t really be any surprise as I rarely see any good news on the news but it does seem to be getting more attention as of late after some very unfortunate events.
