I'll admit it. I don't read the New York Times. At least not on a regular basis. However, I'm glad I was browsing their Web site today because I found a gem of an article on Danny MacAskill.
MacAskill is perhaps one of the most amazing trials riders. Trials riding is a version of cycling in which riders manuever over and around obstacles. Often performing techniques that many would have thought impossible.
If you have a moment you should read the article. And if you have 5 minutes, you should really check out the video that shot this Scottish kid into international stardom. There are some amazing parts to the this video (like riding on a spiked metal fence) or just wait till the stunt at 3:07.
