    Damn sharp images for the speed they were going. Excellent captures. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks. :)

    It's all about quantity. Gotta take a lot of shots, and hopefully in some of them, the camera is in panning sync with the bike, and hopefully some part of the rider is sharp.

    The panning helps give the sensation of speed.

    Then choose a shutter speed that is slow enough to not freeze the wheel motion.

    If there is synchronicity with the golden hour, all the better!

    I might get about 20-30 keepers out of 800-1000 shots.

    Really nice shots, especially the bottom one.
    I'm quite intrigued with how the wheels look out of round. We're these shot with electronic shutter or is it just the effect of a slow shutter speed while moving the camera to follow the action? Either way I like how it adds a degree of drama to the shots.

    Thanks @DaveX !

    @roalk definitely mechanical shutter, I never use the electronic. I am assuming the out-of-round is caused by the bikes being slightly off-vertical and by the panning.
