Terrible KP focusing

OK, not really terrible KP focusing.
Quite happy with these photos I got of Stage 5 of the Tour of Utah last Saturday. Isn't this the equivalent of the "bike riding at you test"? Well these guys were coming at me at ~30mph, and the KP and DFA 150-450 did quite well IMO. This was the early break, and the guy in the pink jersey, Lachlan Morton went on to win the stage in a photo finish 70 miles later.
Also captured one of the the locals taking in the scenery.

Even the Prairie Dog is impressed.

Now that is embarrassing! I am very well acquainted with marmots and not at all with prairie dogs!

Obviously a sarcastic thread title. Great shots, and of the marmot as well!
