Mastering Mountain Bike Skills

Get it at for less than 20 bucks!

I was blessed to find this little gem one day and it's helped my mountain biking tremendously.  No matter how good you are, this book can help you improve and belongs in your arsenal.  I've recommended to probably a dozen people now and everyone that's read it made some huge improvements with it.

It's not often that I can say a book makes any real difference in how well I do an activity, however Mastering Mountain Bike Skills is one huge exception.  It's written by Lee McCormack with Brian Lopes, 3X World Champion.  Everything in this book is articulated so clearly and with real world implementation at the end of the chapters.  It's spelled out in such perfect annotation that you get out on the trail and just say "ah ha!, this is what they were talking about...", and your skills improve instantly, it's that easy!
