The rider pictured will probably clip the line a little past the 1/2 way point around the turn, again, good technique as he retains the option to stay wide if something comes unannounced into his path.
I think he 's watching the 3 hogs coming the other direction to see how far over the line on his side they get before he starts his turn.
