Review by

Having recently come to Cross-Country Mountain Biking from (a long break from) Cyclocross, I needed to revive some old skills, re-contextualise, and learn a whole raft of new ones! This book is a gem. Written in a very relaxed and witty style with plenty of anecdotes, diagrams and photos, the first pass through has been both an entertaining and an informative read. I'll be dipping into it again and again to work on specific skills for quite some time - especially as the "How good is your Kung Fu?" quiz at the end of the book reveals that I "have lots to do. Wax on, wax off. Daniel-san." I like that this stuff is technically engaging while being fun and not too serious - just how I like my biking :-D
