[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski of the Subaru Trek Pro Mountain bike team makes his way down the descent of the final stop of the USA Cycling XCT series in Missoula, Montana.

The first professional mountain bike race in Missoula was a huge success and there are hopes of a return of the pro tour next year.

Harsh afternoon sunlight made for difficult conditions for photography. This image was a panning shot with a slow shutter speed of 1/80th of second to get a feeling of movement in the shot.

Hello John,you did a good job imo, in capturing the feeling of speed as the cyclist descends.
The sharp focus on the man enables us to see the expression on his face, and the tension of his body.
Good composition with space for him to run into.
Tfs, regards Jean.
