Compositionally, I think there is a good balance between the riders on the left and the infield on the right. This sets the shot up to be strong, compositionally. I do think, however, that having the riders further down in the frame, with a bit more space towards the top would make it even stronger, and give a better feeling of the movement of the bikes.

Technically, the focus and details are good. Also, oranges stand out nicely from the asphalt and green grass. It seem that contrast and/or saturation could be bumped up *a little,* to give the photo a bit more dimension -- it feels a bit flat.

Overall, nice work, and I think you met the challenge well. I also think it is interesting that the color schemes are so similar. At first glance, I thought perhaps they were all teammates.

Best to you in future challenges.
