Danny MacAskill and his Drop and Roll Team will be heading to London this upcoming weekend to display their craziest tricks and superhuman skills to the thousands of spectators at RideLondon. RideLondon is an annual three-day cycling festival, which takes place in England’s capital. This world-class event celebrates the passion for two-wheels for the fourth time from July 29th to 31st.

With over 100,000 cyclists and an even greater number of spectators to be expected during the festival days, the Drop and Roll crew is looking forward to record-breaking crowds. What may well be their biggest event ever, the Drop and Roll team of Danny MacAskill, Duncan Shaw, Ali C and Fabio Wibmer are sure to put on quite the show.

“It’s always so rad, when big crowds come to our shows. It motivates us immensely! But I will certainly be a bit more nervous than usual”, admits Fabio Wibmer, the youngest of the group.

The four skills trials riders will be kicking off their weekend at the “Lee Valley VeloPark” located in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Fans should look forward to backflips, trials competitions of the highest level and many more tricks at 2:00pm and 8:00pm. Between both shows (3:30pm to 4:00pm and again from 6:30pm to 7:00pm), spectators will have the opportunity to collect autographs from the crew during the signing sessions.

On Saturday the Drop and Roll team will be showing-off their tricks during shows at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm on the South Bank. There will be half-hour signing sessions after each show for that missed out on Friday as well.

“We have been in London before, but we have never done a show in central London. It will be awesome to be riding with the London eye as a backdrop,” says Duncan Shaw.

The loudest fans will surely be rewarded not only by the wildest of trick combinations, but also with a great number of prizes including custom Drop and Roll Lezyne multi tools and pumps that aren’t available in stores. If you happen to miss the shows in London this weekend, then make sure to take a look at the upcoming tour dates in August!
