Richard Cannon`s shot of Chris Walker rounding Clearways could be said to be similar to that taken by Jed Pilmoor-Brady of Plater and Camier battling for the lead in Race 2 at Brands. However this one for me still deserves to be in the final five. The reason for it`s inclusion is that, like Jed`s shot, it is pin sharp, composition is good, the  background is clean with no distractions. However Richard has either used a longer lens or cropped it tighter to zoom in one the one bike which itself makes it more dramatic. The fact also that it`s more of a head-on angle than Jed`s also gives it a more purposeful pose and Walker`s knee slider is literally sliding along the track, it`s a very powerful shot indeed.
