they would have to go more that a notch faster to get that much blur with the camera setting. not to mention at those speeds one would have to have impeccable timing to get that shot.... even with out water spray making that shot impossible.

looks to me like a quick exposure with hdr effects applied; then the two other riders had a photoshop blur effect applied. this is the quickest and easiest way to do this. heck, the riders only need to go about a little faster than a walking pace to achieve this..

That's what I was thinking. Real picture with slight modification.

the photographer can be on the side of the road, with a telescoping rod w/ drop down stationary extension that has the camera mounted to it. most high end dslr have shutter remotes, so he can snap the shot from the sidelines, then as the middle biker comes into range of the camera, either pull up or twist the telescoping rod, rotating the camera out of the riders way.

i think you're making it more complicated than it needs to be. the photographer is standing in the middle. the three bikes are going as slow as possible with tipping over (about 1/2 mph maybe?). as the riders goes past, the photographer takes a a pic with fast enough exposure so not to blur the center rider . the center rider simply goes around the photographer. photographers feeds the file into a hdr program (can't use photoshop in this case to do hdr because photoshop requires three stationary photos; maybe you can but it never worked well for me). then you apply the motion blur to the two riders in photoshop..

And why would you do/need HDR? All you need to do is apply the filter to the two bikes. HDR is something different.

hdr for the color composition. you can tell by the clouds, very typical in a hdr enhanced photograph..

and that's why none of us are professional photographers...

and one more thing, why would Nikon USA have a picture that's been photoshopped on their site? they make badass cameras, its not fake, just really good

a photog standing in the middle while the rider in the back is sitting on the bike with the kickstand up and ras soon as the other riders come dashing by the rider puts his feet onto the pegs as if he was moving, and the standing photographer snaps the pic thus perviding no rooster tail from the camera just my 2 cents iv done a similar shot in high school it didnt turn out this clean but then i was using a $300 camera too

only problem with that is the tires on the middle bike are moving. i still say telephoto.

Well .. there's two simple ways to find out . One would be to simply ask the photographer how he shot it, the other would be to gather three bikes on a parking lot and just re-shoot the photo.
Who's the photographer?

Ok, just sent an email to Sandro (the original photographer) and asked him.

Cause the one in the back is a Hunda.

My theory. camera on ground, yellow bike is stationary, and other two were moving.
