Thanks for posting them, I enjoyed them very much. There have been a few cycling pictures posted recently, but before that I'd never looked at such a thing. I think you've conveyed the speed very well, the colours are great, and I like the way the cyclists lean into the bends!

Lovely shots, i like 1st one most, the rest panning shots are all good, but it would be so much better if you could get lower with your camera, in some of the shots you can't really see the face, also a fill flash would bring out the face more when they are backlit.

Great series!

Thanks for the comments. I had some professional photographers in front of me taking the down low position so I had shoot higher up. I did use a fill flash on some photos but my rechargeable batteries were half flat. Did not think I would be using a flash that day.

A couple fill flash shots.

I like the Robbie McEwan shot best out of these shots but its a shame I missed the top of his helmet.

Nice shots, the ones with the flash really stand out,amd the others show the sense of movement and speed.
