Hans Rey, Danny MacAskill and Gerhard Czerner go on the mountain bike journey of a lifetime. Facing intense altitude challenges and health risks, they set out to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro by bike.
Danny MacAskill is back with a new mountain bike movie, this time starring Hans Rey and Gerhard Czerner. The group of MTB legends is facing one of their biggest challenges yet: the 20,000ft altitude of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Preparation is key, and the group start their journey on Mount Kenya to give their bodies a chance to adjust to the high altitudes. As Hans says, if people can hike up Kilimanjaro every year, surely it can't be that difficult to bike up it?
Follow the group as they embark on their toughest mission yet, to make it up to the top of Kilimanjaro and bike back down it.
“This was truly a never before done feat, the first back to back mountain bike ascents and descents of Mt. Kenya and Kilimanjaro” said Rey. “It was something I had thought about doing for a long time since my first trip to the region back in 2004. 12 years later we went for it! Danny had never done anything like this. As amazing of an athlete as he is this was serious commitment for him to make without years of conditioning, I was super excited to have him along for the ride.”
