Maybe the most starkly beautiful of Dave Sowerby’s Danny MacAskill videos, this might be a case of filmmaking that actually overwhelms the riding of perhaps the world’s most inventive trials rider.

The setting is dramatic—”the forgotten town of Epecuén in Argentina, a location that has been submerged for the majority of the past 25 years.” The video begins, poignantly, with the town’s only permanent resident all through those years, Pablo Novac, riding a rusty bike through the deserted streets: “In 1985, the rains came.”

Kind of a tough act to follow but Danny gives it a pretty good go.
