I love it when the director cuts to a paddock shot just as the leader is about to change. Another one of my favorites, is when the camera guy is so obsessed with getting an extreme close up, that you miss the setup for his being passed. They understand that a race is not about the relationship between bikes. It's about focusing skills.
Don't you just love the shot of a guy putting numbers on a pit board? I can't see that one enough. Also love the shots of the backs of guys sitting in a booth or girlfriends avoiding eye contact with a camera. This is what it's all about.
It's cool when the camera dwells on a back marker in the gravel during the last 2 laps of a tight race.
Why save those great slo-mo shots for the end of the race? Play them during anxious moments of racing.
