Watch the video again, and notice the difference in turn radius with the bike perpendicular to the ground and with the bike leaning into the turn. You *CANNOT* get a max performance turn without leaning the bike into the turn (which explains why you will often see the really good riders counter-balancing, but don't see the really good riders dragging their knees in the tight corners very often).
