I think that happens when you are changing gears. If you make the engine goes to 3000 rpm and suddenly release the gas pedal and rapidly press down the clutch pedal. The rev would up. With very noisy sound. Isn't it?

May be clutch cable sticking, clutch lever on the gearbox sticking or the actual friction plate in the clutch sticking on the shaft. the latter would probably mean taking the gearbox out to check.
