Completely insane...

That's a new way of throwing yourself down a mountain...

Oh. My. Gods. I like speed, but that is insane!

Interesting suit... I wondered just how fast he's really going, as you can't tell just from video - until he overtook those bikes, that is. I think "Too fast" is the answer.

I wonder how many distracted bikers and drivers crashed just after seeing him go past?

There's another video where he hits 110kph.

I believe he's been even faster on purpose-built luge tracks (like the one in Sarajevo).

Kinda like bobsleighing... except without the sleigh.

Personally I'll stick to doing such stuff *inside* a couple of tons of truck, and take my chance with the brake-fade.

I wonder how many people will try to emulate him and, hence, remove themselves from the gene pool.

OMG ... that's fantastic!

The closest thing to those flying dreams we all have had ...

... but watching him trying to not hit the biker coming out of the tunnel ..... eek!

For aerodynamics (yeah!) he *needs* a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle outfit! ;-)

And, for once, not one we invented.

I gotta say, I'd love to see him do that on the Crown Range Highway.

Hmmm... forgive me for being slightly cynical, but how come in the overhead shots you can't see the following camera vehicle? Is this as 'genuine' as a typical Top Gear shoot?
