Pretty neat bike, but, I question his use of regen. From what I read, the regen capability actually lowered the output of the batteries a bit. It also adds complexity and a small bit of weight.
I can see where it might be helpful on some long downhills in the rockies, so maybe using it to get over them is a good idea. But for the other 4-5K kilometers, I think he would be better ditching it.
