He has been riding all over the globe, performing stunning shows in front of large crowds. In 2012 was given the honor of baring the Olympic torch during its tour in Glasgow. In 2013 Danny completed one of his biggest projects: the unbelievable 'MacAskill’s Imaginate' clip, which was a huge success reaching over 15 million views in just 6 months.
