3. Alvaro Bautista


Highsides are best viewed in slow motion, and this video of Alvaro Bautista catching air during practice at the 2014 Indianapolis Grand Prix is a prime example. Just watch how much the rear of his Honda RC213V slides, and how much it’s compressed. Then, at the fateful moment, the Honda simply flicks the Spaniard off the bike and off the screen entirely! Bautista’s reacclimation with Earth doesn’t end well either, landing on the side of his head and his hands. The commentator’s reactions sum up the scene quite well.
