A bit of ‘This and That’ for stunt riders Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle

Scottish stunt riders, Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle, launch their new feature video, ‘This and That’, presented by Endura, on YouTube

Danny MacAskill has today, Tuesday 04 May 2021, launched a new feature video, Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle – This and That, on his YouTube channel. For his latest feature, presented by Endura, Danny teams up with fellow Scot and BMX wizard Kriss Kyle, in their first video project together, to hit both the extensive woodland trails and sandstone quarry cliffs of Nescliffe in Shropshire, and the testing street obstacles of Blackpool’s seafront.

This and That, a We are Peny Media production directed and edited by Robbie Meade, showcases both Endura riders switching seamlessly between mountain bikes and BMX and street trials bikes to show off some jaw dropping stunts, gravity-defying tricks and outrageous wipe outs, capturing perfectly the huge amounts of fun to be had when riding bikes with friends.

Make sure you witness Danny and Kriss’s action-packed and adrenaline fuelled two centre riding adventure; and brace yourself for Danny’s Blackpool balancing act!  

Danny MacAskill, the world-renowned street trials and mountain bike rider and YouTube sensation from the Isle of Skye, said: ‘Kriss and I are good friends.  We often ride together for fun. He was also one of the team in our sell-out ‘Drop and Roll Live’ stunt show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.  However, this is the first time we have worked together on a film project so we were determined to make the best film we could.

‘Like so many plans over the past year, this film project constantly evolved. Kriss and I wanted to make a video with some international riders.  When they weren’t allowed to travel, we were still keen to get on the road when we could and make the best of the bad situation. It was amazing to get together with Kriss and the crew, working on something new, a film that would capture the fun we all have when riding bikes, a film with a relaxed, humorous and upbeat vibe.

‘As always, I really hope that our fans and anyone who watches ‘This and That’ enjoys it and gets inspired to go out riding with a group of friends for some well-earned fun.’

There were some nature-based challenges for both riders and crew on the six-day shoot. The wind caused havoc in Blackpool. Wind is the enemy when it comes to street riding, even worse than rain. It was extremely difficult for Danny and Kriss to nail their tricks with the winds doing their utmost to blow them over.  It was the Sandflies at Nescliffe that were a real problem.  The whole crew were covered in itchy bites for weeks after the shoot.

Danny MacASkill, the 35-year-old Scot is widely known as one of the most entertaining content creators the world has to offer. Almost 12 years after his breakthrough video ‘Inspired Bicycles – April 2009’, that included mind blowing stunts filmed at iconic locations across Edinburgh, was uploaded to the internet, this and his many other video projects have racked up well over 300,000,000 views on various YouTube platforms. The Ridge (October 2014), Danny’s last feature video filmed on Skye, where he tackles the ‘Inaccessible Pinnacle’ on the Cuillin Ridge, has been watched at least 74,576,094 times on YouTube!
