Nice shot!

You obviously know your sport, you got in the right situation.

It would have been cool to get the rider in behind in the same picture.

Are you allowed to use a flash? A little forced flash would pull the

rider out of the background, lighting up the rider while leaving the background a little darker.

Hi, thanks for the flash tip! I'm not a great flash fan but now I have a decent camera again I might as well get used to using it. I made a whole series some of them with more riders onthem but the other one captured the action best. (I think...)

This one is also nice:

I'm looking at these pictures and the bikes look like dirt bikes fitted with road racing tires!

Are they 250cc?

When I do sports pictures in the rain, I use a disposable film camera. I'm too worried about getting my good digicam ruined in the rain!

Keep up the good work!

I think they were 250 and 400cc bikes, kind of super motard types.
