Now the New York Times interviews him in “A stunt cyclist's Tour de Fence” and tells how the 24-year-old's life has changed since YouTube stardom struck.

Imagine the reaction now when people walking down the street in Edinburgh, Scotland, see him do a backflip off a tree on his bike or bounce off the wall of a building like Spiderman.

Now the world is viewing his amazing feats on this video posted on YouTube.com on Sunday. By Wednesday morning, the clip had been viewed 780,000 times. It's less than 6 minutes long, and just gets crazier as it goes on.

“Road Bike Party 2”; if at first you don’t succeed…

Watching in slack-jawed amazement at the stunts these trials legends can perform on a road bike, I actually forget that Martyn Ashton, Danny MacAskill and Chris Akrigg are human like the rest of us.
