Paeroa Battle Of The Streets

This event is held once a year. It is true street racing that gives the riders a few challenging corners & a long straight that they can reach speeds up to 280km per hour. This rider is about to enter that straight off the hairpin corner.

This bit of editing is slightly different for me. Normally I like the tryed & true "rule of thirds" but I went for a square crop to add impact

Wow, excellent focus and exposure, square crop works well and just keeps pulling you in.

I'm a sucker for a good sportsphoto. Love to do them myself. This is
"ridicolously" amazing! Especially everything taken in concideration.
