7. Cloudy sky, sunny sky, dramatic sky, sunset sky. It's all good unless it's a white and nasty sky.

1. This sequence is insane. Total commitment from Marc Marquez, who recovered from this and actually popped a tiny wheelie as he accelerated out of the corner and still trying to get back on the bike. This photo speaks for itself.
