On the eve of Danny Mac's Way Back Home premier, it's time to take a quick look back at street trials in the UK in maybe 2002 or 2003. Back then there wasn't a youtube or vimeo or any of that really. There wasn't even a trials-shack then I think?

Anyways, the Trials Kings group of riders really were the kings of web vids. The craziest of the trials kings was Danny Holroyd who really didn't have a problem putting his knees through 10+ foot drops to flat or anything like that. But he also hit stuff with speed and that separated him from the pogo sticks of competition riders.

for the longest time i thought these two danny's were one and the same. I had to dig thru an old hard drive to find my trials kings videos like other side and toxicity to find out his last name.

Danny Holroyd ! Just a legend.
As I shown a Holroyd's video to a friend for a couple of months, he couldn't believe that it was filmed many years ago.
Incredible skills and style.

Someone knows whether Danny Holroyd still rides ?
