Danny MacAskill, the Scottish street trials bike stuntman who heralded over 21 million hits on YouTube for his Inspired Bicycles video shot in Edinburgh last year, has released a new film that follows him back to his hometown in the Isle of Skye. Travelling with his close friend and filmmaker Dave Sowerby on a quest to seek out the most challenging riding spots along the way, Danny takes on ancient castles, leaps over rocky terrain and jumps onto and over bridges in the stunning wilderness of remote Scotland. The journey culminates with a return to the stomping ground where Danny first cut his teeth riding in his hometown of Dunvegan, skipping past local B&Bs, jumping railings and even front flipping off a building as he finally arrives back home. Red Bull sponsored this trip and provides an online overview of the Way Back Home journey.
