I watched this video several times and was amazed at how fast the situation unfolded. He's a very fortunate guy. If he had been where that bike landed when it rebounded off the fence, he would be more than a little sore.

Looks like he did an endo to me. Somehow he locked up the front brake?

Strange indeed.
I slow it down and step it a bit at a time to try seeing some details. All I can pin down is either the rear wheel is starting to slide inward or the rear wheel is already unweighted and the bike pivots around the front end.
I can't imagine the rider in a panic, feeling the slide then grabbing a handful of front-brake but that's what it looks like.

Here is a possible description.....

His weight was somewhat wrong as he came into the frame out of the left hand turn. He then shifts his weight (butt) but turns front wheel early initiating a rear wheel drift that then grabs for a bit launching a partial highside. Looks like at that point he went with too much pressure on the front brake and went over the bars. It was the partial high side due to rear wheel biting that started the bike going over.

At these speeds even a little imperfection leads to big trouble...
