Hello from the Critique Club...
This is a really nice photo, technically excellent and a good meet for this challenge. I notice from your portfolio that you have posted other panned photos and your technique here is very good. Especially given the minimal distance to the moving subject. Great work.
The colors really lift the image and you have captured an excellent sense of speed. Voters comments are generally positive as you would expect. I'm not sure I agree with the comment on the harsh shadow, IMO it is not harsh and does not detract from the photo.
Other comments seem to suggest that this was not the only 'bike' picture. It is a reasonably obvious shot for the challenge and as such would need to be exceptional to rise above the others. It is certainly one of the better ones.
It might have been improved had there been more space for the rider to move into and maybe a little more sharpness in the riders face.
Overall I am impressed by this picture and the pictures in your portfolio shows an eclectic mix of subject matter which is always good to see.
I look forward to seeing more pictures from you in the future..
