NFL VS MTB: NFL Star Austin Ekeler Learns How To ‘Do A Wheelie’ With MTB Legend Danny Macaskill

MacAskill and Ekeler at Woodward Tahoe

Danny MacAskill’s latest YouTube hit was a celebration of the humble wheelie, bringing riders from around the world together for some back-wheel action.

Working in partnership with adidas Five Ten, Danny MacAskill has seen the explosion in the popularity of cycling and wanted the opportunity to make a film that would showcase a collective of incredible talent and get people excited to get out there and pop a wheelie. He even created his own ‘How To Wheelie’ tutorial, giving fans the chance to learn from the master himself. 

But he didn’t stop there, Danny had his sights set on bigger ideas: he wanted to see if he could teach a  professional athlete from a completely different sport how to wheelie and open the doors of cycling to an entirely new audience.

Who would be up for the Challenge? None other than LA Chargers running back and adidas teammate, Austin Ekeler – an NFL superstar.
