Really great action shot. Normally I like a minimal approach but if you had not captured the tall buildings and trees in the backdrop then the viewer would not have had the very strong sense of height or the action of falling. Good tones and contrast. Lighting illuminates the subject wonderfully so we get to see the look of concentration on his face while doing the stunt. Congrats on your placement in the top 10:-)

The haloing around the cyclists detracts a little, but nonethe less an impressive photo thta nails the challenge, and easily up there in my top 5. Hope he didn't do a face-plant!

very nice action action shot! i assume u applied the high pass filter here because of the immediate shadows on the rider. it almost looked like it was pasted in the scene

No helmet? That's brave or stupid. Great shot though.
