YouTube mountain biking phenom Danny MacAskill has just released a short trailer teaser of an attempt to scale and descend Kilimanjaro.

We don’t have an awful lot more to add at this point. Indeed, it looks like this vid may be the first of a series of teasers from Lezyne (sponsor of MacAskill and this Kilimanjaro project).

When can you expect to see the full final ‘edit’? Well, at the end of the vid it states: “Witness the conclusion: May 2017.”

There is no footage in this trailer of MacAskill reaching the summit. Nor is there much footage of him descending the mountain at all.

Indeed there’s hardly any footage of Danny riding his bike at all. It’s all hike-a-bike dustbowl grimness. Which sounds very at odds to the usual videos we see of MacAskill that are typically stunt-packed, sunshiney, amusingly vibed videos like his recent smash hit A Wee Day Out.
