Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
In the 1970s, BMX began to appear on the scene of sports until it progressed to the level of becoming an official Olympic sport of extreme biking, or bicycle motorcross (BMX) racing. With its unique style, specific lingo, and notable subculture, BMX racing continued to develop through the 80's and 90's and is still prevalent today. This fascinating book address the people, including features with Cody Hennings, Jonathan Nolte, and Mitch Green, the moves, with how-to instructions for the bunny hop and the disaster, and the unique lingo, such as dialed, jam, and freestyle. The advantages and disadvantages are presented in a unbiased fashion to allow individuals to decide for themselves if freestyle BMX is right for them. The glossary includes a thorough list of terms specific to the field. The layout and photographs provided throughout are showcased in a colorful and appealing manner. For those who finish the book with a hankering to learn more, a complete list of resources including books, DVDs, and websites is included. This is an excellent resource for the beginner wishing to learn more about the world of freestyle BMX. Part of the "On the Radar: Sports" series. Reviewer: Allison Fetters
