Not a lot of tread on those tyres.

A photographic judge once told me, " you need a guy in red in your image" .

You seem to have ticked all the boxes !

Might crop a bit off the top to get a letter-box format, but that is being over critical.

On a score of 1 to 10, damn close to 10

p.s. met Guy last year, he is a legend, and a Gentleman.

I like it but you ought to crop left side. I don't like the red person. IMHO it could work better.

Great shot, fantastic angle. Not sure about the red person...
Best wishes,

Love the angle that was shot from. I don't mind the other photographer in the shot. As well as a great bike action shot, it's also a picture of a picture being captured - I guess the other guy got a mirror image shot with you in the background
