Very first sports pictures. Should have used a shallower DOF but didn't want to miss focus on cyclists. (Not every day that Lance comes to town). Next time...

That race was extremely fun to shoot, the energy from the crowd was great.
My photos are hosted by the newspaper I work for, sorry they're small: http://****/m7porh (external link).
But to get back on topic, Frugal was looking for some feedback. I think your photos look great — it was harsh light to work with and cyclists are tough on auto focus. It looks like the 3rd photo autofocus grabbed Levi instead of Lance.
