My favourite is the first one. You really get the feeling of how tightly bunched they are.
The second one I have mixed feelings about. In one way I really like it because the riders get mixed with the crowd and shows how close they are. On the other hand the riders seem to get lost in the crowd and almost it seems a bit too busy.

Very nicely done an all, but my fav's would be the bikes on roof racks along with the last in each set.
