the only option is to zone pre focus.  This is tricky with your depth of field and subject.  If you have a repeated activity you are trying to catch like basketball then I focus very carefully on the netting of the net or a mark on the floor I am seeing repeated action in with manual focus and peaking.  They just leave it in manual and fire away.  Anything in that plane will be in focus.

With the biker you would have them stop, focus like above on them, note the spot on the ground and have them try to hit that same spot as they go by.  Again you will have focused shots.  Alternatively if they are not someone you can stop, you have to look for the spot that is hit with some regularity and focus on that and wait.

If you need to catch random fast moving stuff all all distances then they really aren't fast enough in my experience anyway.
