Stupid? Cool? But not 80km/hr. Even on straightaways, he's definitely not going that fast.

That's pretty nutty, one wrong move and it's game over. Your equilibrium is so off when you're looking backwards.

I am happy to see that only 5-6 people out of 230 thousand are stupid enough to doubt the speed.
Probably just the usual ones without balls enough to do anything out of their life.
Let me explain
1) The speed was max 80 km/h at the fastest lines, not all the time. Anyone with a bit of brain capacity understand that you got to use brakes through the curves.
2) The parts that look very speedy are filmed with another head camera by a guy who rode besides and behind me.
That makes the camera shaking by every little stone or bump, since those cameras do not come with stabilisator.
3) I am ready to ride again anytime.
Seems like the guy isn't happy people are doubting the speed. lol

I don't know what the reason would be to even bother trying to do that. What's he trying to prove? Un necessary and extremely unsafe.

80kph claim is sensationalized anyways. For all we know he could have hit the 80kph speed for only 1 second.

This is just plain stupid.

He does absolutely nothing to PROVE anything. I've done 60km/h on my road bike going forwards and it's an absolutely insane, I just simply don't buy for a second that he was doing 80 going backwards, and nothing short of a radar gun, GPS verification, or something with a speedo pacing him is going to change that!

Yeah this is true Markymark. On my roadbike on the flats going 40-45kph is pretty damn quick. And that guy is on a mountain bike. Not skinny road tires...
