I think that's an artifact of the shutter speed on the camera. The revs definitely increase.

pulling the clutch in would do the same thing, and that hopping sound isn't normal with power slides

Had a nice time out there on a Friday morning a few weeks ago. Doing the run from the overlook down to the store. Me in a Tacoma, following my son and his friend on their skateboards. The kids are feckin nuts. But, they hug the white line on all curves and stay in control.

Too much lean angle too quickly. Not a smooth transition, too abrupt. Also, like Smurf said, she needs to get some weight moved over the inside of the turn.

That camelback might have saved his backbone. Looked nasty.

Seems like he got on the gas too hard, too late. A smoother application started sooner might have transfered more weight to the rear and kept traction. Hard to do but this is not the time to let off the gas, this is a "when in doubt gas it" moment!

It's the photographers fault, she was afraid someone would be checkin out her ass on advrider.com so she kept both cheeks on the seat!

Not sure but she may have scraped a hard part.

Easier said than done.

If Stoner and Lorenzo can't even pull that off, we don't have much chance either.

There are numerous vids showing bikes loosing traction in that spot. I'd say there is a vertical curve(a near instantaneous transition from a slight incline to a flat stretch) in the road there that causes the bike to get light enough to let the rear tire to lose traction and thus cause this thread.

I think you are correct. Look at this Google StreetView image. This is a massively uphill section that starts to flatten out right where people loose traction.
