Default Cycling in Spain

This is absolutely mad: http://www.dumpert.nl/mediabase/1392...in_spanje.html

Can anyone make out where in Spain they have filmed this?

Initially looked like the montes de malaga, then I thought el torcal - but it's the wrong rock
Mad indeed!

I thought it was the Sierra de Mijas, but I dont recognise the lake on the in-land side. Maybe it was shot in more than one location or maybe I havent seen the lake yet!

There are lots of mountain bike routes up there and up Calamorro (the monte with the cable car that starts in Arroyo de la miel). Lots of good walking routes too, especially with the spring coming up, best time!

Looks like where all our TV ariels are pointing, but there is no lake there, probably El Chorro.
The beach and the sunset look wrong too.
All bits and pieces stuck together.

A few shots look familiar from around here, but I would agree with jdr, looks like different places chopped together.
Brave is not what springs to my mind

Average at best.
I might give him 5 out of 10 on a good day.

He has a long way to go to catch up with this Jock,Danny Macgaskill, the Worlds No.1.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFSDa...feature=fvwrel

Loads of other vids of him doing all sorts of different stuff in a variety of locations.

Balls of steel that one, even though he does seem to repeat the same trick a lot. But hey, you wouldn´t see me do it!

Hi, got ´m & I´ll attach it here. What I don´t get that all these guys don´t wear any sort of protective gear except for a helmet, It´s gotta hurt when they make a mistake!
