Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day Out


It’s the day of the Dirt Christmas Party and we’re already feeling a bit merry. To spread the good cheer we thought we’d re-share the most fun video of the year – Wee Day Out.

Here’s what we said at the time:

Danny MacAskill is back in his native Scotland and he spent all summer shooting this absolutely banging new video called Wee day out.

It follows him as he treks around Edinburgh’s countryside to find the best trials and trail spots. As usual these may not be things us mortals even see such as houses, railway footbridges and six foot deep puddles – but then that’s probably just a standard day in the country for Danny!

It feels to us more like his internet-breaking The Ridge, filmed in Skye, than his more staged efforts like Imaginate, but either way, the man with 250 million views is about to get a shed load more.

Danny says: “Although I’m doing very abnormal riding, I set out to make a video that hopefully relates to the normal rider.

“Every rider has had to ride through a puddle when it’s been a bit unknown how deep the centre of that puddle is, it just so happens that the puddle in my film is 6ft deep.

“I wanted to do a video on the mountain bike again and give myself creative freedom with this film. It’s meant to be a fun day out on the bike, so I wanted it to be quite light hearted.”

Sign him up for the FMB Tour, this side flip is unreal on a full suss!
This roly-poly-fakie-drop... thing, is definitely the highlight
Danny's dad even makes a cameo appearance!
It's a tough life
14 tubs of vaseline went into lubing Danny's log

But no more spoilers from us. All we’re going to say is this is Danny’s finest video to date and you should watch it as soon as possible.
