He got scared of his corner entry speed. Stood the bike up. Locked both brakes. Realized he aint going to make it. Leaned away from impact. And said Fck it!!!

He could have made it if he went "outside/in" and trail braked like a mother

1 broken femur later, maybe he realized the street wasn't the best place to be testing his skills or lack of.

From the looks of the slow-mo, he looks like he was going to drift the corner.

Lesson learned: slow down before the corner, not on it.
