    the focus point should be on the crowd or on the bikers??

    On the crowd. Looks like he used a small aperture, maybe f16-f22, and a shutter speed of maybe 0.5 sec.

    FYI: This effect has less to do with the focal point (thanks to the deep DOF from a small aperture) and more about shutter speed and using a tripod.

    and know what is your slowest possible hand held shutter speed with photos still sharp.
