Alison Dunlap
Alison Dunlap, 13-time mountain bike world champion
I've been racing bikes for 17 years and even I learned a thing or two after reading Serious Mountain Biking. Filled with descriptions, examples, diagrams, and pictures, it does a great job of explaining the many aspects of our sport.
