That explains why the first shot looked a bit soft, was that pretty much at 300mm. It looked like your were panning on that one? It would have been nice if the front wheel did not get cut off.

Nice uses of the frame on the second one, the dead area were the bike is heading.

The 3rd I would crop out some of the rear dead area. It does not as flowing as well with the dead space behind the subject.

These are very nice. The Nikon D3000 doesn't have a great AF system for moving subjects, but if you can keep the subjects going across your field of view (instead of toward or away from you) that may not be much of a problem. I think you need some practice panning, and if you stop down that Tamron 70-300 to about f/11, the lens will get sharper, but these are good.
