Nikon d7100 Foucs Issue

So I came here looking for help today and hope I can get something. I have been shooting action sports for about 3 years now and have been a Canon user for all 3. I had the t2i, the 7D and then upgraded to the 5D3 but due to some problems I sold all the gear for some money. Now that Im back up and started a company I thought why no go and use Nikon, seems they are having some good stuff come out, so i picked up the D7100. I went D7100 becuase I like the crop for my sports.

Ok so my first weekend out with the camera was this last weekend, I shot Downhill and Moto with a rented 70-200 2.8 VR version 1 lens. I had nothing but trouble all weekend. For starters the focus just seemed t2i slow. It never locked on and 80% of shots have a real lack of detail. I know its my first weekend with the camera but this is not a strong start to me keeping the Nikon. Does anyone know what the problem could be or have such problems? Here are some shots of what I mean. The first two are 7100 the one with the rider on the bike and lighting is Canon. Big Diff. And I wasnt even using 2.8 I was at 5.6 since I was getting somewhat better images.
