Question on Restore,Recovery from Image Copy in RAC

Found the following in
SYS@DBTEST>startup mount
SYS@DBTEST>switch database to copy;
SYS@DBTEST>Recovery the database;
SYS@DBTEST>Alter database open;
The author of the blog says
"Please note that we didn’t restore backup from backup disk or media, we have pointed the database to backup. "

So, how will this work for restores in RAC ? Because, after the 'switching' to a datafile which is now disk based only one of the instance will be able to acess that datafile. Right ?
Even if we be cross-mount the backup location to both nodes , the datafile will still not be in the ASM diskgroup where it was originally stored ?
