The future of gravity-defying superheroes is here and it sits on two wheels.
In a video posted Tuesday — which already had 1.3 million views Wednesday! — Martyn Ashton rides over construction materials, pallets, even an airplane wing. The riding is very much like what Joseph Gordon-Levitt does in "Premium Rush," except that this isn’t acting. And it’s quite a bit more awesome.
Ashton is joined by Chris Akrigg, who goes boulder scrambling. On a bike. And by Danny MacAskill, who takes to the top of a train, not unlike James Bond in "Skyfall." Except, yep, MacAskill’s on a bike too.
The video also happens to be a sequel to an earlier project, posted last year, that has about 9.2 millions views. Enjoy.
