Wingsuit-flying through a narrow mountain cave: A real or a fake video?

Daredevil wingsuit-flyer Alexander Polli has released footage showing him flying at 250 km/h (155 mph) through a narrow mountain cave known as “Batman Cave” in the Roca Foradada Mountains in Montserrat, Spain. Note that the real action begins after the one minute mark:

Polli is a Norwegian-Italian extreme athlete who specializes in tactical wingsuit flying and base jumping. He is also claiming to be the first person to have flown on his own power “through a narrow cave on a rugged mountainside” – a stunt we can probably guarantee no one else has attempted.

However and while Polli has apparently been touting the stunt for weeks and has established a well earned reputation for dare devil stunts, we do have to ask the question: Do you think the video is real or a fake?
