A trick I learned from observing National Geographic; take a wide angle and place the beginning of the leading subject in the foreground.

That was kinda my thinking on the low angle...use the wood leading to the ramp as my leading line.

For the leading line purpose I would crop the upside down driver out of the picture. With a other crop the leading line would work in my opionion. And it would be a nice picture for those who don't know about the whole picture.

That would have been my suggestion as well. While the jump itself with those guys is really neat, you have too much going on and the "line" gets interrupted as of right now. If you crop the top one out of the picture so that the ramp leads only to the first one, that works better. The problem for some might still be that the line is interrupted due to the air/space between the ramp and the first motor cycle. Also, I would suggest to simplify it even more by cropping it into portrait and removing the cyclist and truck but even then, whenever I close and open my eyes for a few seconds and look at the picture, the line always brings me to the ramp instead of the motor cycle :/.

The second shot might work if you changed the crop to cut it right above the riders head, then the cones lead to him, I'm not at home to try it so I'm just wondering out loud, right now, there really aren't any leading lines that I see.

I agree with the second one whole hearted about having potential. It's a really good leading line but I can't remember if I read it in our studies or from another source but this is the classic mistake of the leading line leading right passed the subject-if of course the subject is the rider and that's exactly what my eye did. My eye naturally passed the rider up and I actually had to back track myself telling myself that the rider is more than likely the primary subject of interest.
