    Lucky to recover it.

    The front end was that out of shape because he locked the front wheel.

    I don't think he dabbed. I think his boot was dragged off the peg.

    My take is:
    Too hot entering the turn, it tightened up more than he planned.
    Right foot is hanging off the peg a bit, and is dragged off the peg when he increases his lean angle.
    Startled, he grabs more front brake and locks it momentarily.
    He must've had the wherewithall to let off the front brake, or he'd have gone down. Probably a fairly experienced rider who just got caught off guard with that particular turn. The fact that there is an oncoming automobile in the turn may have had something to do with it, distracting him for a moment.

    I say that the excessive front brake became secondary when the torque on his knee and ankle focused his attention on his leg. That's gonna be sore later. Don't ask me how I know...
