There are few people in the cycling world as recognizable as Danny MacAskill. While many pros obtain stratospheric levels of fame and notoriety within the world of cycling, few can boast that even non-cyclists have shared their videos and know their name. And yet, Danny still manages to be one of the most approachable geniuses on a bike you’re likely to meet – which is surely part of why he’s so popular with fans. Shortly after the brick of time Magura had arranged for one on one interviews, Danny was out front signing autographs. The crowd was so big that Magura had to shut it down so Danny could get onto his next obligation.

While his skills on a bike have catapulted him into the spotlight, they also brought on an increasingly heavy schedule of demos, appearances, and rides befitting an international celebrity. Fortunately, we had enough time to sit down with Danny and pick his brain a bit about a number of things, including what he carries around the world, set backs along the way, and what’s coming next…

Week’s Best Videos: Kelly’s riding lives on in McGazza Vs. the Volcano plus great adventures into the great beyond

Giro Australian adventure adam craig jared graves kelly mcgarry (1)

000 Kelly Mcgarry

“McGazza” may not get to see this video in person, but it represents something that was close to Kelly and will benefit from for years to come. Kelly McGarry, iconic free-rider, and one of the biggest Redbull Rampage competitors (in stature & skill), passed away unexpectedly earlier this year during a ride.

“Kelly vs. the Volcano”, shot on White Island in January in association with Tourism New Zealand was originally created to promote Crankworx Rotorua, an event Kelly help make a reality. With Kelly’s loss, they transformed the video into a personal nod from Kelly to get more people excited about riding in New Zealand where he is from by raising money through the Kelly McGarry memorial trust. The money will be used to promote riding and build more trails.

Check out the fantastic & hilarious video of Kelly and see how you can help his cause, plus tag along on some adventures with Bombtrack and Tumbleweed Bikes…
