Stunt cyclist Danny MacAskill is king of the concrete jungle

Pedalling superhero Danny MacAskill is the star of a new show that highlights urban street sports. He shot to fame when a film of his jaw-dropping bike antics captured the public imagination.

Then the Edinburgh man was able to give up his day job and spend all his time on his extraordinary talent.

Now Channel 4 has starred Danny in Concrete Circus when filmmakers followed him around for a summer.

Alongside Danny are skateboarder Kilian Martin, free runners Blue and Phil Doyle and BMX flatlander Keelan Phillips.

He was filmed by Stu Thomson. Stu told BikeRadar: “We wanted something different from Danny's other videos but as I'm from a mountain bike background I didn't want to produce a standard 'urban' bmx style video.

"We looked hard for a location that would have a character in the film and make it very different from the others.

“We were pretty tight on time making it, as I've had a busy year, but with Stu's filming skills and a great soundtrack I think we've managed to pull off a fun little film... spread it, if you like it!”

You can see the original video that shot the Scot to internet stardom.
