Interesting program on Danny MacAskill the lad from the isle of Skye that does the bike stunts on channel 4 last night, looking into the theory that they are not addicted to adrenalin, worth watching on i player.

Yeah that was a highlight for me too .... bonkers .. but there was a fair few valley sweeps where they were the same height as the trees too .. and some excellent show stoppers as they passed view points Brilliant, but so risky ..

Danny is incredible to watch he defies the normal laws of physics and man/machine control .. he is one of a kind

That's the opening sequence of the next James Bond film sorted, then.
