MAZY woodland trails in Nesscliffe feature in a new video shot by a renowned stunt biker who is looking to inspire others to give the sport a go.

Danny MacAskill shot his new stunt film in the Shropshire area alongside Kriss Kyle, with the pair making the most of the off-road terrain and woodland trails.

MacAskill, 35, is a YouTube sensation from the Isle of Skye, and has acquired hundreds of millions of views on his online stunt videos.

The six-minute video, titled This and That, sees the pair switch between mountain and street bikes, perfectly executing complex tricks – and failing the odd few as well.

MacAskill hopes his new stunt film inspires the next generation to get on their bikes and try something daring.

“We’ve just tried to produce a fun, entertaining video,” he told PA.

“Hopefully some younger riders watching this get inspired to go out on their bikes – and as they will see from the bloopers the other message is wear your helmets and pads.”

As well as performing stunts in Nesscliffe, the pair are also seen trying out some tricks in Blackpool.

MacAskill added: “We filmed for around five days and it was a lot of fun, collaborating with Kriss was great, he is a very creative rider with amazing ability.

“Nesscliffe provided a really good area, near an old sandstone quarry with natural obstacles and jumps to work with, while Blackpool has some interesting obstacles, but the wind made it very challenging.”

The film was sponsored by Scotland-based cycle kit maker Endura, which makes items like helmets, jerseys and protective padding.

It features several wipe-outs and crashes as the pair attempt high-level acrobatics, which MacAskill says contributes to its relaxed, off-the-cuff feel and shows other riders the realities of biking.

He added: “I’m a trial veteran and Kriss is BMX but we’ve got into mountain biking in the past couple of years so it’s mix and match, or this and that even.

“It’s quite challenging to do tricks on mountain bikes, they don’t particularly like going backwards. But these days they are so good and light and strong.”
