Okay, although the two audiences, there and here, are not the same. Here is what the video owner (not aushiker) posted at BROL. The author was on a German velomobile list, so English is not his first language, and obviously the original post was also not in English.
I am the dumb person and the author of the video.
When I would have run down the girl with the cam this would have been worse because she is my wife
I am glad that the video was received positively by the majority of riders - it was really only to help others to prevent similar situations and not to show of.
The increased speed however was partly due to the fact that I wanted good material on the video.
Ok - now I DO have "good" material but not the way I wanted it to be
Take care and everyone drive carefully so you don't end up like I did
I think what was intended was for him to lift a wheel by taking the corner too fast and thus show the cornering limits of a velo; but he originally intended to recover and keep going.
