Just another bike ride in Denmark ?

BMX sensation, Kriss Kyle, caused quite a splash (get it?!) when he came to play all over some of our biggest sights this summer. Luckily for those of you who didn't get to watch him in action, a film crew followed him around and caught the highs (and the odd near miss) of his adventures in Denmark!

Behind the scenes

Kriss made it all look easy. You might even think he had fun exploring Denmark's everyday wonders. But in reality, two weeks of hard graft and... no actually, it was just a lot of fun. But did he land those tailwhips first time? And what motivates Kriss Kyle to share his passion for exploring the world from a different angle?

How did Kriss get the name The Scottish Wildcat? And what's happened to his scaredy bone? Find out how 27-year-old Red Bull BMX star Kriss Kyle got to where he is today, landing insane tricks and wowing the world.

Watch the outtakes!

What is it about people falling off their bikes that is such great entertainment? Kriss was kind enough to not land gracefully on some of his tricks, so we could all enjoy some outtakes. (And don't worry, he's fine!)

Want to try this for yourself?

Don't! Are you completely mad? No really, of course you can. All the locations Kriss tricked at were real places to visit in Denmark. And many of them are completely free to explore! Read on for how to follow in Kriss' tyre tracks.

How Kriss got around Denmark

It might look like Kriss effortlessly tricked his way from wonder to wonder, but he needed a little extra help to get around our island nation! 

You can treat yourself to a quick hop between Copenhagen and Aarhus with a Nordic Seaplane ride, departing from harbours in both cities.

Be honest. You too have imagined trying to get on a ferry when it's already departed. Kriss did it this summer, on the famous island-hopping ferry IDA!

How to start planning your own adventure

If Kriss' exploits have inspired you to visit, either on two wheels or with two feet planted firmly on the ground at all times, here's some bit to help you get started!
