Lance Armstrong's achievement (as vividly detailed in Daniel Coyle's Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force) has been one of the most astonishing in recent sporting history, not least for the reasons detailed in the book's strapline: tough guys, flawed heroes and one man's battle for ultimate supremacy. This is the remarkable story of a man who triumphed over all the odds -- a behind-the-scenes record of the 2004 professional cycling season and the manner in which Armstrong landed his sixth Tour de France victory. What makes the book particularly inspiring is the fact that Armstrong is no superman -- he talks about the many strikes against him (his age, the dissolving of his team and -- most of all -- his triumph over potentially lethal illness (his struggle against cancer is, of course, well-known).

I am pretty impressed with this book, when I first flicked through the pages I was a bit dissapointed at its slightly 'out of date' look that was mostly reflected in the pictures. However when I started reading it, it's really quite hard to put down. There are a lot of tips and tricks for every possible aspect of mountain biking, it even has some training routines. The great thing about this book is it gets you out on your bike trying things you never wanted/thought you could do. Also, you end up going back to it time and time again and reading pages that you didn't read before, like tips on altitude, winter riding and building up to racing.

More people are taking to the roads or exploring the wilderness on bicycles. This text provides advice on preventing and treating all kinds of bicycling-related aches and pains. It explains how to diagnose problems, offers solutions and alerts readers to conditions that require medical attention. This book does not deal with training programs. Its sole focus is on riders health, what makes a good cyclist,vo2 max, power etc what role each plays in performance how to improve these in general terms Finally it deals in depth with how to take care of your health with FAQ and advice. An excellent book if you are any way curious about what training is really about. A huge amount of information for the beginner or most experienced rider.

I purchased this book recently as I felt my MTB skills were somewhat lacking, particularly with regards to switchbacks, drop-offs and jumps. This book is well laid out, with fantastic photography, detailed instructions that are for once easy to follow in conjunction with the photographs. The book is also written with a huge element of humour, and I found myself laughing aloud at the comments and language. I have already gained some speed and control since reading this book, which in my humble opinion is an excellent addition to any mountain biker's library, whether you call yourself a cross country rider, a downhiller, weekend warrior or stunt king!

Most guide books simply give selected routes and maps, this one is refreshingly different. It lists areas within the UK where there is good biking, tells you what the riding's like there, what maps you need and suggests routes in very broad terms. You then need to get the relevent maps out and plan a detailed route yourself. The downside of this is you need to competent in map reading but the plus side is the guide book covers the whole UK.

The filming of the riding instruction bits is pretty good there are no sound problems and the video quality is good. As for the acctual instruction, it's all sound advice and is clearly and simply explained. There are some good riding sections thoughout that break up the film a bit and help it avoid feeling like a school video. The riding technique is very much aimed at freeride and downhill skills with some jumping, but having said that there is plenty to learn in there for XC and trails riders like cornering and speed hops, and obviously the workshop section applys to all bikes. If you ride mountain bikes then this is certain to help your riding and maintanence skills, so is well worth the money.
