Back in April 2009 Danny MacAskill released a five-and-a-half-minute street trials video on YouTube that was to change his life. Filmed by his flatmate Dave Sowerby, the video got a few hundred thousand views over night and as of today has been watched well over 25 million times – the world went crazy for Danny.
He left his job as a mechanic, became a street trials pro rider, and appeared in TV commercials, music videos and was nominated for the Action Sportsperson of the Year Category of the Laureus World Sports Awards.
