This guy just may have claimed the "stupidest person alive" if he makes it to next week. Doubtful.

I just don't understand the reasoning behind the wearing of that aero helmet
Is he going to help the car go faster?

Oh, okay
Yeah, I don't care.


Seriously, though
To go through all that trouble
why not make a suit that is as aero as the helmet?

I think the aero helmet is so that his head won't fly off from the drag. Actually, that would be an improvement.

Also, does that thing have suspension? Why would he use the before mentioned mtb bars and suspension?

I would have rather been standing on top of the car using permanently mounted shoes, dressed up as dirk diggler.

Where, the challenge all he has to do is hold on? I want to see him just standing on the roof, keeping his balance and grip... just like real surfers do.

If my buddy could hold on at 195 on his Ninja, I don't see why a professional idiot like this guy couldn't handle riding such a ridiculous bike set up. Seems like a waste of time and money to me.
