There was a point in the middle where he appeared to be shaking his head "no" before he turned it to circle the cone yet his line remained consistent. I definitely would've fallen off the bike if I tried to shake my head.

The hanging off would work against a quick rotation around the cone.

The higher the lean angle of the chassis, the smallest the circle that can be traced around the cone, due to the geometry of the steering at full lock.

In this competition, minimum traced distances and high degrees of acceleration (notice the big rear sprocket) are more important than speed.
