Time exposer. He was going a little over the speed limit which caused the slight blur even with the flash. Used 1 Alien Bee B800 with silver reversible umbrella to light.

Very nice, tried a similar shot to this for a road signs challenge, but my SB800 just wasn't powerful enough to expose the bike properly. Be interested to know what equipment you used....

A most arresting image because the light trail entrains the attention to follow it and follow it as it winds. Wow! Congratulations on your top 20 finish and good score.

woah, how did you even do that?

ok, this is a cool shot, very well executed. all the same, there is nothing in the image that really conveys the idea of sport to me, in the sense of competition, team play, or the like. believe me, i know bike racing is a sport, but i don't get the sense of a race from this image. killer shot, though, and hope it does well for you.

This picture is one of the best in the challenge as far as I am concerned - I love the light coming round the corner, it gives action to the shot - well done 9

Very effective. Colors are interesting. Composition could be changed to have less surrounding. A little grainy.

Great picture. I love that the light trail goes all the way down the visible road.

Reminds me of TRON

Loved the matching light path with white line. Would be a great picture if th bike was a little sharper (tough I know).
