Looks really good. Consistent technique.
Like everyone else except for Vanev and Kakhi, he could get under the bar quicker/sooner. He gets the elbows around nice and quick, but many elite lifters manage to rack the bar at a lower elevation. The bar doesn't exactly crash on him, but he doesn't stop it dead in its tracks either - he's riding it down a fair distance after racking it. (I do the same thing, btw.)
The split on the jerk is a little shallow, but not to the point of being an error. The dip is a touch long and he stalls a little at the bottom. The length of the dip might be fine, but any lower and he'll have problems. A slightly shorter dip with a quicker turn-around might be better.
Bar path is excellent. Really, this guy doesn't have a whole lot of technique faults to work on. What's his max?

Thanks for your comment, Lincoln. My best C&J was 115 kg, done over a year ago.
You pointed out an issue I've always struggled with -- the speed of reversal (or lack of) in the jerk dip. If you think it's noticable now, you should've seen it two years ago! For some reason, when I try to quicken my reversal, I precede it with too fast of a dip and the bar comes off my shoulders and throws the timing off completely.
With your comment I will return to working on the reversal speed.
Other analysis is absolutely welcomed!
