Good work.

there are some nice images in there.

maybe something to try, which i have been trying lately, is to crop a little tighter on the riders?

i was watching it all on Freecaster. Jared Graves has got to be my favourite rider of all time.

Try some panning... This is Action forum, add some to your images, only freezing can get boring.

Yeah I know that panning is the most effective way to get an impression of speed but the terrain is so bumpy and there is literaly no smooth place to get a good panning shot in there, and Graves is one of the fastest riders i have seen in a long time. Also I will try to get the shots better frames next year but when they are moving so fast its hard to get a good tight shot of just the rider so i just made sure i got them all in the shot.

There nice, but i agree with others about the tighter crop and panning.
Thanks For Sharing!
