I don't do a lot of sports but when I do I remember how bad the 75-300 lens is and battling through the crowd but these are my favorites. Lens on the 650d.

1) I consider this my best in very low light!!

To me, all of those look great! :D It's hard to say at the resolution that we can post on the net, but as a fan of cycling in general, I think you have captured the riders well. I'm not keen on pin sharp renditions of the action. Its not that kind of game to me. The road shakes you up. The bike bounces and your legs spin so there's not much that isn't moving and that's what I like to see in a photograph of a rider.
The sunshine makes for great illumination, but hard and dark shadows. I experiment with flash.

Thanks for your reply mate.
I would have liked to see how flash would have worked in the first shot, it was nearly dark and I worked in PP to lighten it as much as I could.

It was frustrating getting a clear shot with the crowds and man the 75-300 is slow, hope to have a new lens by next year and try some local state level events too.

The rider in the first shot is Rohan Dennis the tour winner and he also broke the 1 hour record after that. What a start to the year for him. :-)
