Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Twelve-time national champion, both on-road and off-road, John Howard represented the United States in three Olympic Games and was the winner at the 1981 Ironman. Dirt! is the culminated wisdom gleaned from his years of racing mountain bikes and coaching professional riders.Techniques covered include: reading trails; descending; jumping; braking; executing turns; climbing; emergency stopping, mounting, and dismounting; maintaining equipment; troubleshooting; stretching, weight training, and nutrition for the cyclist; and maximizing oxygen-carrying capacity.Howard's expertise and thorough coverage of the sport make this book vital for more advanced riders, while his friendly style and detailed explanations are accessible to beginners. For cyclists who will never have the privilege of being coached by John Howard, Dirt! is the next best thing. (6 X 9, 190 pages, b&w photos, diagrams, charts)
