Also, keep reading to find out how you can run next to Danny MacAskill and the Drop and Roll Team at the Wings For Life World Run.

 

 

Danny MacAskill's Drop and Roll team includes Tour Manager, Duncan Shaw and one of the most technical riders on the scene, Ali Clarkson, as well as Austria's rising star, Fabio Wibmer. But the wizard behind the tour is professional tinkerer, Dave Mackison. The new video, "A Year in the Making" shows how the Drop and Roll Team comes together to create one of the most energetic and interactive live sports shows there is. For them, the hardships of building a custom made rig and traveling across Europe with a 3.5 tone trailer is nothing less than fun and adventure. Their new documentary gives you a glimpse at the challenges they overcame along the way : https://youtu.be/5nGm-c21X-I

"2014 was a lot of work getting Drop and Roll setup. This year will be awesome hitting the road again for more shows and filming trips." – Dave Mackison

The 2015 season blasted off with an awesome two-day appearance at the F.re.e Munich trade show in February. Now, back in bonnie Scotland, the team are preparing for one of the biggest shows of the year. The entire bike scene will kick off their season at the Riva Bike Festival, so naturally the Drop and Roll team will be there, presented by Livigno, to show their skills. Do you want to see how Danny does his "ball–flip" from the "Imaginate" film? Or maybe watch him ride along the famous spikey fence from the original 2009 "Inspired Bicycles" video. Come along on May 1st and 2nd for two amazing days of live performances by Danny MacAskill and his team.

"Drop and Roll's first year was incredible and far surpassed our expectations. This year is looking to be even better with awesome team video projects in the pipeline and new show stops like the Fort William World Cup in June. This crowd is probably going to be one of the raddest we have ever had. See you there...." – Danny MacAskill

In 2015, the Drop and Roll Tour will be travelling across Europe to perform at trade shows, festivals, town events, and other happenings. The team have spent the winter months dreaming up and creating new features and tricks to add in the shows. A Drop and Roll show is an interactive feast as commentator Henry Jackson gets the spectators involved in the show and dishes out loads of free gifts from the tour partners. Apart from the upcoming show at Riva del Garda, confirmed highlights include: The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup stop at Fort William (June 7-8, UK) and the largest bike trade show in the world, Eurobike (August 28-29, GER).
