Mixing vertigo-inducing lines and killer POV-footage, “Cascadia” delivers some incredible riding.
Cascadia, the breathtaking GoPro production, showcases Scottish trial cycling legend Danny MacAskill’s spectacular riding where no one has ridden before – across the rooftops of picturesque Gran Canaria in Spain.
As Danny makes his way from the highest rooftop across all sorts of obstacles all the way to the ocean, we are treated to some incredibly immersive and vertigo-inducing action.
The rooftop video I knew would be fairly high risk, but I have been riding trial for the last 18 years and you obviously start small, at curb height, with small obstacles and improving your skills to gradually move up on higher and higher walls. Then basically I tried to find riding in Las Palmas that was probably up to 80% of the difficulty level I could do low down. In the video, I am often riding on three or four story drops to my side but I am completely comfortable while I am up there.
A Special Thanks to the wonderful people of Gran Canaria who opened their homes to us and helped make this project a reality.
Muchas gracias a la gente de Gran Canaria por tu hospitalidad!
