Commitment? He's on the brakes...
Posed shot. This guy is static.... balanced on his knee (see the rock or pad under his knee?), brakes on to hold the bike.
Hence the 'counter-steer' - you cannot counter steer through a turn, unless you're doing a rear wheel drift. Counter steer works to initiate a turn, not to execute it. Especially relevant for heavy motos. Much less relevant for a light bicycle with a proportionately lighter rider aboard. I can wheel my bike along and make it turn simply by leaning it to one side. On the road, for much of the cornering at speed that you do, the lean is initiated bodily by the rider. Pedal down, weight the pedal , look into the corner and lean with the bike. Think about what happens should you ride 'no hands'. You can still execute turns, no countersteering involved at all here.
