AFC bike riding sequence (K-S2 + Sigma 17-70 C)

I had the Sigma 17-70 C for a while but never really used it since I had the Tamron 17-50 F2.8. Few days ago I decided to test the Sigma to see if its hyper-sonic motor does any better than the Tamron's screw drive. I shot many sequences of my son biking towards me, with various settings. I believe the most successful sequence was done with AF Hold Off, shown below:









I would not have expected the Tamron and my previous K-30 doing this sequence this well, maybe half would have been in focus. I do not recall if K-30 had AF Hold option, but seems like the K-S2 and Sigma combo is quite decent for action.
