If you mean "acting" as in playing a role, then yes. For all we know this could be a professional stuntman, or highly skilled cyclist operating well within his skill set, and so not an idiot, only pretending (acting) to be one.

I put this in the same category as the "crazy" freestyle stunt riders whose videos of riding along bridge arches, jumping from building to building, and so on we see and enjoy all the time.

Put simply, if he can do this without crashing, he's a daredevil. If he crashes, he's a nut.
