I believe he is, the place I saw this on web referred to him in past tense.

That is the craziest, stupidest thing I think I've ever seen..... When you do stuff like that, its no longer a matter of skill, its a matter of odds. I'm not surpised if hes dead.

I agree Griff - I mean did you see how many very close calls he had ... when he was passing cars on their right side, just as they were moving right into another lane? A few of them were VERY close! This guy has got to be toast.

I see no reason to doubt his continued existence. All he is doing is weaving through traffic at 100+ . Ok so 148 through the tunnel with the traffic is a little nuts. I would have done it when I was a teenager. Not now though too much to live for. Typical Frenchman.
BTW it is french being translated/commentated by the voice over into german.

That was absolute insanity. I would agree that there is a good chance he is no longer with us. He was probably killed while stopped at an intersection by an ambulance running over him or something stupid like that, though. For some reason, people that ride like that seem to have 9 lives.

I've seen this video several times over on esportbike.com...

This is the Bypass Expressway that encircles Paris... kinda like the one around Atlanta... anyway, somebody over on esporbike translated a little of it and this guy was illegally trying to set his own personal record for the quickest time around this loop.

I agree it looks pretty careless and wreckless... but I also think the "fish-eye" camera makes it look more dramatic and overemphasizes the close calls.

nuts

Yep, that has got to be one of the more crazy videos I have seen. But I do agree that the camera had something to do with it. Not much, but something.
