Not a bad result in the end, above your average and that's the main thing :)

I don't like your photo, BUMMER!. Not really, nice action capture, pity about the challenge rules preventing you reducing the light reflection on the nose. === 9

Certainly not the sort of shot you see every day, but cropped so tight like this it loses a bit of context. Almost looks like the guy is just sitting there spinning his wheels in the dirt rather than having missed a turn. Not voting, just commenting. Good luck.
