I’m always amazed how photographers are able to hide in plain sight and bring us those quiet, unguarded moments. Today’s photograph shows how adept Jon Baines is in capturing such moments.

This has been my first year of seriously shooting races and I’ve come to realise some of my favourite moments are before the racing has even begun, finding riders having a quiet moment before they take to the start line. Here, NFTO’s James Lowsley-Williams pins on his race numbers in the team bus ahead of the final round of the 2015 Tour Series in Bath.
