PNG - 506.1 kb RedBull / Inspired street star Danny MacAskill has been working once again with Mike Christie, the director of Jump London and Concrete Circus. The latter brought together a handful of stars from the urban sports world, included Danny, and teamed them up with film makers to see what they could produce (see Danny’s Industrial Revolutions).

Danny’s back on Channel 4 this summer, in a new hour-long documentary, Daredevils – Life on the Edge. He explores the world of extreme sports in order to understand and explain why its practitioners take such high risks in their quest for the next rush, and sets out some key points on how he practices his sport. Are these guys just ‘adrenaline junkies’, or is there something else behind it all? Danny then sets out his 10 Rules of Risk that he applies to his riding and to the extreme sportsmen that he meets in this documentary. Here are the Rules of Risk, according to Danny. Check out the full documentary on 4OD.

- Rule 1: Check Your Gear, Or Eat Crap! Watch Danny MacAskill and Jokke Summer talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 2: Remember What You’re Doing is Fun! Watch Danny MacAskill and The Frenchies talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 3: Control Is King! Watch Danny MacAskill and The Frenchies talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 4: If In Doubt - Flat Out! Watch Danny MacAskill and Guy Martin talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 5: Trust In Your Ability! Watch Danny MacAskill and Stu Thompson talk about Garrett McNamara and how they approach risk.


- Rule 6: Know Your Lines! Watch Danny MacAskill, Guy Martin and Jokke Summer talk about and how they approach risk.


- Rule 7: Anything Can and Should be Ridden! Watch Danny MacAskill and The Frenchies talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 8: Doubt Is The Enemy! Watch Danny MacAskill and The Frenchies talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 9: Be Ready To Adapt! Watch Danny MacAskill and The Frenchies talk about how they approach risk.


- Rule 10: If At First You Don’t Succeed... Watch Danny MacAskill and The Frenchies talk about how they approach risk.


Can you apply these rules to your riding?
