passing among those wooden poles at 100 km/h seems quite scaring to me :o :o

Yeah... this is certainly nothing to try at home... 8)

Tilmann also said that his helmet + neck stabilizer probably saved his life or prevented major injuries when he lost control in the slow down phase, still at high speed. Tilmann added that he feels he can go even faster but has to wait a couple of weeks before trying again, due to minor injuries from the incident, best seen in this video:

Firefox has a plugin called "download helper" that will let you save the flv. Then, you can use Super to convert tat flv to a more usable format.
