Danny MacAskill, cyclist
Danny MacAskill, a professional street trials rider, shot to fame in 2009 when he put a film on You Tube of his cycling exploits around Edinburgh. Danny was born in Dunvegan on the island of Skye in Scotland. He is now a professional street trials rider.
He was at St Andrew’s Square as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival yesterday, performing some bike stunts in front of a huge crowd of enthusiastic youngsters. Fortunately the rain held off just long enough for Danny to perform his stunts to a very appreciative crowd.
