Danny MacAskill at the BIKE EXPO tradeshow

Danny MacAskill already stoked the visitors of last year’s BIKE EXPO with his amazing live performed skills. Back then, the 23 years old athlete from the Edinburgh was just at the very beginning of his career.

Well-known bike stars like Lance Armstrong, who said that Danny’s video is a “must-see”, supported him while the media interest increased enormously: Daily newspapers, lifestyle magazines and TV-shows from around the world featured his unique story. Appearances in TV adverts, new sponsors and a nomination at the Laureus Sports Awards followed.

Danny enjoys the new freedom compared to his earlier life as a bike mechanic in Edinburgh: “Nowadays I am lucky enough to decide when to ride where with whom, which photo and film trips to do as well as which interviews to give. I am usually more into filming, but the BIKE EXPO show is one of my main events for this year. Last year was pure fun.

The atmosphere was great and the spectators pushed me a lot. I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to visit Munich very soon!”

Danny will show his skills on a special trials course on the exterior area of the BIKE EXPO: Friday at 2:00 and 5:00 pm, Saturday at 12:30 and 5:00 pm, as well as Sunday at 10:00 am and 12:30 pm.
