just before the championship race... He Won!

Thanks to everyone for the helpful comments. This was my first entry into a challenge and I am quite pleased with the results. No winner, far from it, but the votes came in and I did get some helpful info in the process.

The photo was titled PRAYERS because that is what he was doing, saying his prayers!

Didn't need the selective desat.

Nice shot, but not so sure about the selective color.

I'm sure the situation didn't lend itself to be able to, but this image would be MUCH stronger without the people behind the biker. The 2nd biker right behind your subject is the most distracting as it pulls your eyes away even though it's been desaturated. The black outfit surrounding the main black helmet de-emphisizes (is that a word? ;) your real subject.
The main subject itself is nice & strong otherwise.

I like the point of view on this and the desturated background to bring the focal point in front.
Not sure I understand the title, but I don't need to in order to say well done!

great title shifts attention to people in the background. I would love to see this without the colors disrupting the composition.

Selective desat works well. Would have cropped out that partial face.
