Right foot appears to be. Left foot, possibly not - or only toes maybe

At the very least you can see the detached chain as the bike is rolled to the shoulder. Whether that CAUSED the crash...?

that was crazy He definitely spit the chain way before the crash He then pulled His clutch hand up He must have over braked the rear because it wasn't slowing down as anticipated when He let of the gas ?

However the chain WAS off before the rear lockup, you can see the loop of it hanging down.

THEN the brake light goes on.
