The screaming in the helmet after the crash at the end of the video is a particularly effective moment.
That would be the infamous Rob Frost, or Frosty Bollocks. He made a career out of crashing his bloody brains out. Both on race tracks and for Fast Bike videos. Fortunately he's retired.

Damn, that was a looooonnng time ago.
