When we last heard from mountain bike stunt rider Danny MacAskill, the Scot was atop the Inaccessible Pinnacle in his latest video endeavor, "The Ridge," in which his father was worried he might get seriously hurt or even kill himself.

He took death-defying lines on the 7-mile-long Cuillin Ridge of the Isle of Skye and lived to do his next stunt: a loop-the-loop on a barge on the River Thames in front of the London Eye.

"This is one of the biggest set-ups I have ever ridden and the location is amazing," MacAskill told The Scotsman.

"To have a five-meter loop floating on a barge is something surreal.

"I always look for new challenges and the chance to ride this massive loop with the help of Cortana is another achievement I can be proud of."

Here's his loop-the-loop:

The stunt, an obvious marketing ploy, was designed to recreate the Cortana icon in the loop. And though it didn't take him as long to do as "The Ridge," or "Epecuén," or "Industrial Revolution," or "Way Back Home," the film that elevated him to fame for his stunt riding, it still had an entertainment factor.
