This was taking place in one of the banked turns at Road America.. with a Canon 400mm f2.8 IS L lens, plus an additional 2.0X Teleconverter, which softens the image and makes auto focusing slower and less accurate, I managed to nail this unpredictable shot with the rider's helmet being the focal plane spot.. I think most people would have gotten the front tire of the bike in focus under those conditions, or nothing worth looking at at all.. :-)
