When you think Marc Marquez Laguna Seca many things might come to mind. First MotoGP rookie to win at Laguna Seca. First MotoPG rookie to earn eight podiums in first nine races of a season. Youngest rider to win back to back MotoGP races.

While I can’t say for certain, I believe that Marc is also the first rider to have been captured with both wheels in the air through Laguna Seca’s daunting Turn 1.

Marc Marquez, First in Flight commemorates Marc’s amazing first appearance at Laguna Seca in 2013. The photograph shows Marc at top speed through Turn 1, both wheels in the air, about to land in the record books. The above image is a photo of a signed print. To see the image larger please click on the image above.

This was one of the most challenging images I’ve ever attempted. Once again, I got lucky to end up with a successful shot. You can read the story behind how this photographed was captured in this article.

When I presented it to Marc for his signature, he gasped, “Whoa!” Then he asked if he could have a copy. I asked him while he signed away if he could tell that both wheels were leaving the ground, and he said yes, sometimes it happened in a way that he could feel. But I got the impression that feeling it at the time was somehow different from seeing it captured in a split second in this photograph.

Now that Laguna Seca is no longer on the MotoGP calendar, the uniqueness of this image has just increased!

Update, August 2014: Copy #40 just sold at the Riders For Health Day of Champions for £900 ($1,490).
