Danny MacAskill's Latest Video "Industrial Revolutions"

Danny MacAskill's mountain biking videos have racked up millions of views on YouTube—his Inspired Bicycles clip is closing in on 27 million hits—and for good reason. Aside from the fact that his two-wheeled porn is beautifully shot and features great music, MacAskill exhibits within each clip a level of skill and precision that's jaw-dropping. He practices some individual stunts for eight hours before attempting them on film. In his latest video, MacAskill rolls and hops around an old ironworks factory and abandoned railway yard, jumping from rail to rail and riding across a cable on his bike. Stu Thomson of Cut Media directed the Industrial Revolutions clip for Concrete Circus, a documentary that aired on Britain's Channel 4 this week.

If you have questions about how Macaskill does these tricks, check out the videos below. It helps to see his answers supported with visuals. If you'd rather just watch in awe, click on the video above.
