Moments in Pictures- my 2018

Regular Cycling Legends photographer Andy Jones has captured big moments from the Olympic Games and the Tour de France, but he also has an eye for the back story and for intimate moments, as his selection of photos from the last 12 months proves.

Words and photos: Andy Jones

These photos represent a mix of my favourite moments from 2018. They aren’t in any particular order, not even in time, but they represent moments, big ones and little ones, I’ve enjoyed and managed to capture. I'd like to share them now with you now.  

 Image of Alex Richardson
                               I think this one shows that winning the Lincoln GP in May meant a lot to Alex Richardson. A moment
                               charged with emotion.

Image of Conor Swift, Adam Blythe and Owen Doull
                             Connor Swift, Adam Blythe and Owain Doull on the podium at the National Road Race Championships in
                             Stamfordham at the beginning of July.

Image of SunWeb team
                               Women's Tour winner Coryn Rivera and her SunWeb Team alone togther on the Colwyn Bay seafront,
                               having a quiet moment to reflect on the race.

Image of  George Evans
                               George Evans on his way to winning the Good Friday Buxton Hilly time trial back in March. I always like this
                               race, it’s in the Peak District, which I love, and the course has great photo opportunities.

Image of Geraint Thomas
                              Geraint Thomas puts in a winning performance at the National Time Trial Championships at the end of June.
                              The way he looked, the margin he won by, and his high average speed on what was a trick course 
                              showed he was ready for the Tour de France.

Image of Tour de Yorkshire Women
                                 The Women's Tour de Yorkshire passes through Little Weighton on stage one of the race
                                 on a lovely day at the beginning of May.

Image of LottoJumbo Roglic
                             Primoz Roglic leads his Lotto Jumbo team to take team time trial victory at the top of Whinlatter Pass on
                             stage five of the EVO Energy
Tour of Britain.

Image of Megan Gaurnier wins
                               Back to the Tour de Yorkshire, and Megan Gaunier really celebrates taking stage two and the overall
                               of the Tour de Yorkshire on the summit of the Cow & Calf, Ilkley.

Image of Nick Craig
                               How many photos have I taken of Nick Craig? I love this one as he descends Pen-Y-Ghent during
                               this year's Three Peaks Cyclo Cross at the end of September. He was fourth overall in the race, despite
                               being well into his veteran years.

Image of Tom Pidcock
                                All eyes on Tom Pidcock, the focus of the spectators at the National Cyclo-Cross Championships at
                                Hetton Lyons Country Park, Consett back in January, where he took the U23 title.

Image of Russ Downing
                                          There’s lots of life in the old dog yet. Russ Downing (Holdsworth) had an end of season blast up
                                 Pea Royd Lane, Stocksbridge, Sheffield, venue for the National Hill Climb Championships at the
                                 end of October. Russ is always a great subject, he always gives everything he’s got, and I hope he
                                 carries on racing for many years to come.

Image of Conor Swift and his dad                                                     Connor Swift and his dad share the emotion of winning the National Road Race title.

Image of Greg Van Avermaet
                               A reflective Greg Van Avermaet after the stage two finish on the Cow & Calf, Ilkley. The
                               presentation podium is reflected in his glasses, a position he would see himself on by taking the 2018
                               overall win after the final stage in to Leeds.

All the best to all of you for 2019, and I’ll see you out on the road somewhere next year.
