Stunt ace Danny MacAskill unveils Way Back Home film (+ video)

Scot returns to native Isle of Skye and hosts online Q&A session with Red Bull

There can’t be too many of you who haven’t seen the YouTube video that propelled Danny MacAskill to fame 18 months ago – 21 million views and still counting – and now, the Scottish street trials rider debuts his latest film, with sponsors Red Bull also hosting an online Q&A session with the stunt specialist.

As reported earlier this week MacAskill unveiled the new film, called Way Back Home, in which he returns to his native Isle of Skye, on the Red Bull website on tuesday, while the Q&A session reveals “how he came up with the daredevil tricks he performs on his journey and his experience of heading back to his home town to pull off the sort of stunts he got police cautions for when he was growing up.”

So here is his latest film in all it's glory, plus a short video of MacAskill scouting out locations for it.
