Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
Invented in the late seventies, mountain bikes are the bike of choice, even for many urban riders. Their durable frames, thick tires, and rugged stability allow riders to pursue the sport on any terrain. For most, mountain biking means a ride on trails, up sloping paths, or hopping a curb. However, for an extreme few riders, there is the sport of extreme mountain biking. Within the broad title of the sport are various different events. Downhill dual racing, downhill time trials, cross country racing, and trial biking are just a few of the events born from traditional mountain biking. Authors Kelley MacAulay and Bobbie Kalman help younger readers discover these amazing sports and the elite athletes who compete. Color photographs enhance the reading experience. A volume of the "Extreme Sports: No Limits," series, this book covers the gamut of mountain biking sports, emphasizing not only the spectacular racing and jumping of these athletes, but the different equipment and safety gear used. As with all other books in the series there are further study resources and a glossary, making this an excellent addition to any school or public library.
