Nice, the flash really fills in the shadows on the face. Hope the flash didn't distract the rider too much.

Normally, when they see the camera they stop and pose :) :) :)

Moderately slow?!
Gotta get me a flash!

Did you notice how front wheels get very light in the proximity of a camera for some reason.

Sort of an "anti-gravity" effect :D

Absolutely, and for some reason when you get home, you notice this brown mottled effect on your lovely white lens :shock:

The bikes do a lot of bouncing up and down, as well as forward, which makes it a bit difficult to pan with a really slow shutter speed. :)

Nice capture!

True about the competitors hamming it up for the camera. I saw a guy in a desert racing F-150 gas it for a little kicker, launch into the air and take out a telephone pole... all because he saw a few of us shooting right there. Of course, I got a bit of the leap, but no sequence of him going into the pole.
