    Well done Kevin. The light looks as though it was very harsh though. I'd like to offer a few tips if I may:
    You've got the motion blur almost right but the shutter was a bit too slow at 1/125th. Next time try this:
    Shutter Priority mode - 1/250th - Auto ISO - Evaluative Metering - Hi Speed Continuous - AI Servo AF - IS = ON.
    Get the focus on the rider when he comes in to view and start panning as you hold the button down. Also try the "Sniper Shot" technique, and slowly breathe out when you pan, this actually lessens the shaking of your camera/lens to get a sharper set of shots. For different looks and to freeze the action, try 1/1000th plus. You're obviously having some fun. If you have a larger zoom lens, give that a try as well. Good luck and keep at it, good work mate!
