Look harder, it wasn't trolley tracks, it was an unintentional stoppie to avoid slamming in to the idiot running across traffic. If you watch it a couple times you can clearly see someone run directly in front of him from the right and keep on going out the left side. Kudos to the rider (and the brakes) for reacting that quickly even if did mean going all the way over the bars. Unfortunately the person that actually caused the accident probably just kept on going.
