Mountain biking pushes athletes to their limits, racing over rough terrain across the country. But as popular as mountain biking races are, there are few resources to help mountain bikers who want to compete.

Training for Mountain Biking: A Practical Guide for the Busy Athlete provides elite-level instruction for the non-professional athlete, from beginning to experienced racers.

Topics covered in this book include:

  • Selecting and maintaining equipment
  • Developing a training plan
  • Strength and conditioning
  • Developing a sound and safe nutrition plan
  • Common injuries and injury prevention
  • Preparing for competitions
Most mountain bikers must be able to effectively balance strength and conditioning workouts, biking workouts, family, work, and recovery. This book is designed for just that purpose, helping athletes develop programs for their specific needs, whether training for health and wellness or winning the race.
