Leave it to Ricciardo to make faces on Hamilton's phone while being interviewed and can't do anything about it. It was broadcast out to Hamilton's 5 million Instagram fans. Prank level 1000.

Cross-Country Raids like Morocco, Silk Way, and of course Dakar feature terrain that is so photographic and so...martian at times. It's a photographer's paradise.

The conditions the bike riders faced on a few stages of the Rallye de Maroc was borderline ridiculous. Lucky for us, the photos were incredible.

Another great, planned out shot from the WRC. The power of an off-camera flash unit can never be underestimated.

A little late getting this photo, but it deserves a showing. Sofuoglu ended the day with a few fractures to his hip and is expected to make full recovery. Nonetheless, this is an amazing moment in time, captured.
