Summary

Summary

Master the techniques of America's greatest rider with Mountain Bike Like a Champion. * Glide over rocks, logs, and ledges * Attack steep climbs and rapid descents * Carve through curves and turns * Train smart, then ride to win Improve your performance with these tips, techniques, and off-road tales from mountain biking legend Ned Overend. "At the 1990 world championships in Durango, Colorado, Thomas Frischknecht and I were locked in a dogfight.... At the start of the fourth and final lap was a pitch of rocky, loose trail that went straight up the face of a ski run.... My Swiss rival had been dismounting and running this climb while I stayed on my bike. On previous laps, I'd opened a little gap, so I knew this would be my chance. I attacked when Thomas got off again. He never caught me.... To ride that steep trail, I had to use five climbing techniques. There's no reason why you can't make them part of your arsenal, too."
