I don't think it's that obvious, to be honest. When you mention it, itbecomes more so, though. Try blurring the edge of the rider / bike slightly to get rid of the harsh edges. Or maybe use the smudge tool to gently blend the colours from the background to the rider.

Nice edit though.

It looks like both photos were taken in overcast conditions, which definitely helps. I assume you still have the layered file with the rider on his own layer.

I would desaturate the colors of the rider a bit, the background looks grayer. The background also seems to have a slightly blue cast to it, so you might add a mild tint on top of the rider. You can spray in some soft shadows behind his feet and the tires to help blend him with the background.

The light source of the background appears to be to the right and back a ways, while the light source for the rider is more towards the front and the left. You could try shading in the left of the rider (his right) and the front tire.

I'm not suggesting that any of this is required for the photo to be good, but they are techniques you might like to try.
