The Scottish young gun will show his skills and tricks live at the BIKE EXPO. The international bicycle tradeshow based in Munich is Danny’s only German show date in 2010. This street trial highlight is presented by Power Balance.
Danny MacAskill already stoked the visitors of last year’s BIKE EXPO with his amazing live performed skills. Back then, the 23 years old athlete from the Edinburgh was just at the very beginning of his career. Well-known bike stars like Lance Armstrong, who said that Danny’s video is a “must-see”, supported him while the media interest increased enormously: Daily newspapers, lifestyle magazines and TV-shows from around the world featured his unique story. Appearances in TV adverts, new sponsors and a nomination at the Laureus Sports Awards followed.
Danny enjoys the new freedom compared to his earlier life as a bike mechanic in Edinburgh: “Nowadays I am lucky enough to decide when to ride where with whom, which photo and film trips to do as well as which interviews to give. I am usually more into filming, but the BIKE EXPO show is one of my main events for this year. Last year was pure fun. The atmosphere was great and the spectators pushed me a lot. I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to visit Munich very soon!”
Danny will show his skills on a special trials course on the exterior area of the BIKE EXPO: Friday at 2:00 and 5:00 pm, Saturday at 12:30 and 5:00 pm, as well as Sunday at 10:00 am and 12:30 pm. The shows are presented by Power Balance, a Performance Technology designed to work with your body’s natural energy field and to increase the balance, strength as well as flexibility (http://www.powerbalance.com).
Let’s see what kind of crazy stunts Danny will pull being naturally pushed like this.
