Dear Channel 4,
You commissioned this piece of awesome, kindly create a show about cycling where Danny MacAskill can be the cycling Stig, taking on a different set of obstacles every week and testing bikes to see how easy they are to bunny hop. There would have to be more sensible stuff as well, but you know this would be brilliant.
