Classic highside. He opened the throttle a little too much while leaned way over, causing the rear tire to spin up (causing the first tire marks). When that happened, he chopped the throttle (marks stopped briefly) and the rear tire regained traction. Since the tires were out of line with each other when the rear regained traction, the bike tried to correct itself (intermittent marks) by standing itself up very quickly, which launched the rider over the high side of the bike. No brakes were involved in that accident.

if he stayed on the throttle and not chopped it, he would haev lowsided and that probably would hvae cost him a lot less to fix his bike :\

or if he just kept the throttle where it was, he would have had one of the best video clips of his life. An almost full corner power slide onto the straight.
