Supercross rider doing a 'whip'. The bike is actually traveling from left to right in the photo. I don't know how they manage to land in one piece!

Taken without flash using available light from the spotlights & careful panning! Not quite sure about the lighting pole in the background though.

F/4, 1/50 sec, 200mm

Thanks for looking

Excellent capture and great sharpness! Only thing is that the balls in the bg might distract you from giving the bike/biker 100% attention. Don't know if it would be an easy cloning job or not tho...
