World's Greatest Daredevil Cyclist

The world just can't get enough of the amazing, amazing Danny MacAskill. Back in September, we featured the incredible cyclist, and today he's been written up in the New York Times.

Danny MacAskill: World's Greatest Daredevil CyclistToday's Times article reports,

"MacAskill's attitude is simple: it's all about preparation, confidence and positive thinking.

'Picturing anything negative will make something bad happen,' he said. 'You have to be relaxed. Whether it's 10 feet or 1,000 feet from the ground, I do not plan to fall.'

But positive thinking goes only so far. MacAskill broke his collarbone in a fall as he turned a corner during a visit to San Diego in October. That was days after he terrified friends by clowning around on his bike on a lookout by the Hoover Dam.

Over the years, he has torn ligaments in his ankles, dislocated fingers, broken his right wrist and been a fixture in X-ray rooms around Britain."

Despite his injury, MacAskill's positive thinking (and daredevil nature) prevails. His skills continue to astound.
