Thanks...
I have to work more on this technique, I couldn't stop myself framing too high as I panned on the motorcycle. I have lots of shots with the bottom half of the motorbike missing before I managed this one...but I love the expression on this kid's face, and the other motorbike blurring by the other way.

Cool shot. Here's my thoughts on adjustments. The edit above looks a little blocked up in the shadows. You could pull out detail even more in the riders, but this is a quickie.

Levels, curves, color adjustment of -6 red, and sharpen.

Here's my take:

Used a very similar technique to Markc, but with some more attention on the channel mixer and also the smart sharpen for horizontal motion blur in CS2. Also bumped the sat and contrast slightly.
