full tilt

Taken at Tournagrough corner, remote release, pre-focussed on area of road & tried to time release to get bike(s) in position, plenty of scrap as the bikes are travelling very quickly at this point.

1/4000sec, f4.2 (+0.7 ev comp) lens set at approx 38mm

Superb shot, if I had to nitpick, it's a shame about the marshalls in the background, but know from experience that sometimes you just can't choose a clean background at a sporting event.

I think having the marshals there is fine and adds context. Cracking shot.
