Default Vintage Motocross

Went with a friend (#73) to a Vintage motocross event on Sunday at Devil's Ridge in Sanford, NC and took a bunch of photos.

You can vied the whole set at http://andygriffin.smugmug.com/Motocross/Devils-Ridge

Here are a few examples....

1. I actually tried the panning thing on a few but don't have the technique yet


2. I am amazed how some of these guys can ride these old bikes.


3.


4. My friend Sandy on his Honda 250 vs a guy we watched as teenagers in the 70's. Ricky was really fast back then and still does well for an old guy.


5.


6.


7.


8. These two put on a show all day in four separate heats.



Thanks for Looking,
Andy

You've done a good job with these and even the panning one seems to have worked. Panning while shooting MX is hard as the surface is uneven so that adds a vertical movement into the bike/rider which you can't account for with the pan.

Which lens were you using?

Thanks guys.

Mark - It was a mixture during the day. For these I used,

Tamron 17-50 for 1, 6, and 8
Canon 70-200 for #2
Canon 70-200 with 1.4x for 3, 4, 5, and 7
