Award hope for stunt star

STUNT cyclist Danny MacAskill has been nominated for National Geographic Magazine’s Adventurer of the Year award.

Mr MacAskill, who shot to fame after uploading films of his breathtaking leaps and tricks to YouTube, said: “It is quite a shock and an honour to be nominated. I have been incredibly lucky this year, travelling all over the world, seeing and doing things I couldn’t have even dreamed of.

“It’s amazing getting to do what I love doing every day and getting recognition like this for it.”
