Mountain Biker Danny MacAskill's Balls Are Way Bigger Than Yours
Remember when you felt like you defied death by popping a wheelie in the middle of the road? Well, even if you don't, forget about trying to keep up with trials cyclist Danny MacAskill. The 28-year-old Scot has taken his bike to a never-before ridden trail through the Cuillin Mountains on his home island, the Isle of Skye, and made the video, "The Ridge":
MacAskill rides on narrow ridges that offer him amazing views of the valleys where his body would lie for days before they find his corpse if he falls (think "127 Hours" meets any Warren Miller movie). He summits peaks so high that he makes his own ozone holes. And because riding his bike isn't enough, he carries the damn thing on his shoulder up the sides of those craggy hills just to reach parts of the "trail."
I can't understand what would make him risk his life for a Sunday ride, but face it, MacAskill burns through more testosterone and adrenaline in this video than you will in your whole life (okay, female readers, you may substitute estrogen into that sentence). So watch "The Ridge" and make sure your skirt is on straight (okay, female readers, you may take offense to that last comment).
