That's nice, but can it be made into jerky?

I saw this last week and have been meaning to post it.  I'm not sure why it was removed.  But, it an amazing video if it's ever re-posted.

After watching it a couple of times, I'm calling fake too.

No snow on front tire, and a couple of those uphills would not be navigable even with studded tires.

I've ridden dirt bikes in deep snow with studded tires. They get stuck pretty frequently on level ground, forget uphills like that.

I was a bit of a disbeliever myself... until I found this other video made by the same rider.

the above opinion is simply that of an average middle aged hick with one too many brain injuries... or, don't take it too serious.

His helmet never moved, no matter what was happening with the bike. I have no idea how it was done, but I have my doubts.

the gopro is mounted to the helmet so it will always appear stationary.

If that's really the case, that guy's neck is unworldy.
