All great shots with my favs being #4 and 8. Number 4 for the emotion in the eyes and 8 - great panning work.
The most important part, IMO, are the eyes and they are clear and in focus. As for the wheel spin - yes that's important but also when the rider has the front wheel in the air it is obvious that the photo isn't static. Plus, if you freezing the action with a nice long roost or dirt/dust getting kicked up by slamming into a berm is also as effective as trying to incorporate a sense of motion such as wheel spin.
I usually try and shoot in manual for the shifting clouds, sun etc. I'm usually in the forest and light can really change in there. I've learned to get quick adjusting either speed or aperture as needed - pending on the look I'm out after.
My only complaint would be the colours. I would prefer having a bit more saturation and black and a bit more contrast. The colours seem dull - almost as if the bike's plastics have been sitting out in the sun for a few years. But, again, this is my preference.
Gotta love these little rippers especially when they can clear a double and I'm still struggling with it!! Which is why I ride the woods
