    Or was that so obvious that it didn’t need mentioning

    I am wondering tbh. And the reason the riding’s more limited is that it’s all stuff they do on the tour, done with the tour kit. So frinstance he didn’t do a flip off Edinburgh castle because it doesn’t fit in the flightcase.

    Also, Rob Halford!

    Well couldn’t they have at least got a model Stonehenge then?

    Were we all watching the same video? Did everyone saying the riding lacked imagination *see* that knee slide? Massive thumbs up from me.

    One thing I miss in Danny’s videos over the original 2009 Inspired vid is the public reaction to his riding

    I’m a big fan of Danny Mac and hair metal, but I think that got stretched to its limit.

    Oh dear.

    As with many things as the budget has increased and more people have become involved the videos have got worse and worse. Struggling for ideas indeed… but the thing is they don’t really need ideas, just him riding his bike around is enough. The Edinburgh video he did years ago was an absolute classic and will remain so for decades to come. It’s a shame.

    They should maybe take a look at 411 Video Magazine for how to ‘keep it real’. Great rider though.

    I liked it. A bit of self-effacing humour and a good ad for the tour (which is, after all, what it’s supposed to be).

    some good riding liked the slide to bike but it was overall dreadful

    Even my kids thought it was crap.

    This is what cracks me up about this forum , A guy releases a free to view toungue in cheek video to the masses and then gets flamed by Internet mtb superstars. At the end of the day he rides bikes and rides them well , there are only so many times you can film the same skills and make them interesting. I think people become a bit desensitized these days to videos as they have seen the same tricks before.
    I doubt Danny will lose any sleep about reading he has jumped the shark from the STW Gee Athertons . I’d say the best bike video doing the rounds recently must be the Kriss Kyle BMX one.

    Normally love DM s stuff but gave up on that after two minutes. A lot of filler. Now Imaginate that’s a different matter 🙂

    Not the sort of the thing he should be foisting on us poah-faced evangelical puritans. Now, if he’d been riding a jones steadily round a flinty mudbath in a brown apron while thinking about how get an even MOAR obscure brand of coffee bean THEN I’d respect him.

    Fun 5 minutes, why so serious? One thing DM does I don’t generally bother with is his helmet cams. I like to watch helmet cams to get the sense of speed on the dh runs etc, what DM does imo doesn’t translate to rider’s eye view.
