Photographer Michael Crook has spent most of the year traveling with the best US domestic teams, to the biggest races this side of the Atlantic. What she captures isn’t the usual photographer on the road shots, that chase the action at the front of the pack. She captures a side of the race that you or I wouldn’t normally get to see. There is an honesty to the shots that show a slice of life at the less glamorous end of our sport.
