Alastair, Fabio, Duncan & Danny MacAskill - by Dave Mackison

Let’s Drop and Roll! Danny MacAskill and his crew of stunning street trials athletes are back on tour for 2016! After a very successful year in 2015, including the launch of the new clip “This is Drop and Roll” (over 300,000 views; http://bit.ly/thisisdropandroll), the “Drop and Roll” team will be stopping at numerous venues in the upcoming months. After a fantastic season opening in Zurich this past weekend, fans can look forward to eight more shows in the upcoming months, which have been confirmed so far. Apart from six shows taking place in Great Britain, Danny and his crew will also be presenting the Drop and Roll Tour to fans in Switzerland and Germany, bringing the excitement to Basel and Friedrichshafen. Your event can also still be added to the tour, just email dropandroll@rasoulution.com.

The Drop and Roll tour was launched in 2014, when Danny MacAskill teamed up with top street trials riders and good friends, Duncan Shaw, Alastair Clarkson and Fabio Wibmer from Austria. For two years now the group of creative street trials riders have been drawing in large crowds to numerous big European events such as the Red Bull Air Race (GBR), Eurobike (GER) and the Riva Bike Festival (ITA).

Last year the Drop and Roll Tour also premiered outside of Europe, performing shows at the Engen Cycle in the City Festival in Capetown, South Africa (http://bit.ly/dropandroll_theshow). “After two awesome years performing with Duncan, Ali and Fabio, I am excited as ever to be back on the road with the guys and our new rig”, says Danny MacAskill.

MacAskill and his friends kicked-off the 2016 tour in style at the Moto Trials World Indoor Championship in January. Now however, with spring bringing fans into the wide outdoors, the team premiered last weekend at the Urban Bike Festival in Zurich, Switzerland. Thanks to the Drop and Roll Tour partners, the tour bus was once again heading through Europe loaded with a new rig including the technical Muc-Off and Magura Skinnies, the huge Continental Box, Five Ten Tower, Lezyne Pyramid and GoPro Spikey Fence.

“We have had a couple of months off during the winter, which was great, but it’s just grand to be hitting the road again with the others and showing the crowd some of the new things we have been working on”, reveals Duncan Shaw. On this past weekend Danny, Duncan, Fabio and Ali thrilled an estimated two thousand spectators at the Urban Bike Festival.
