Menasha Ridge Press :: Biking :: Mountain Bike Master: Essential Skills and Advanced Techniques Made Easy
Mountain Bike Master: Essential Skills and Advanced Techniques Made Easy
Mountain Bike Master: Essential Skills and Advanced Techniques Made Easy 
     Ride faster, better, and stronger with professional Mountain Bike Master skills guide Mark Langton. Mountain Bike Master is a practical and inspiring guide that begins with the fundamental skills like shifting, braking, and climbing. Simple moves such as correcting seat-height adjustment and learning how to best-shift when engaging a steep ascent add tons of fun and efficiency to any ride.

    Intermediate skills, including riding technical terrain, power wheelies, and cornering, zips readers into the next level of riding competence. Now sporting a wide grin and the confidence of nailing the basic and intermediate skills, readers transition into advanced skills such as jumps, bunny hops, and counter steering.

After reading and putting Langton's lessons to practice, what once was a thigh-quivering lap around the park should now feel and look more like an iron-saddled grind up a steep mountain path. Today's demanding trails and high-tech bikes meet needs for speed, bumps, and thrills. Veteran mountain biker Mark Langton expertly guides and instills the confidence needed to get out there and have a great time while minimizing injury to self and bike.

    Headed into his twenty second year as a mountain bike trainer and guide, Langton and Mountain Bike Master take the guesswork out of quickly and safely mastering the art and science of cleanly rounding banked mountain curves and getting the most pedal for the metal with efficient riding basics. So grab your bike and get going.


About Mark Langton
Mark Langton began mountain biking in 1983 in the Santa Monica Mountains of Southern California. A brief but successful racing career saw him win several local and regional races in the Expert class in the mid-to-late 1980s. He is a pioneer in Southern California’s land-access movement, helping found the Concerned Off-Road Bicyclists Association (CORBA) in 1987 and the Mountain Bike Unit volunteer backcountry patrol in 1988, both of which are still having positive effects in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. From 1987 to 1995, he was an editor at Mountain Biking magazine, where he wrote dozens of technique articles and covered the best riders in the world. He began teaching mountain bike skills for the Learning Tree University in 1987 and in 1992 started CORBA’s Introduction to Mountain Biking Skills class, which he continues to teach today. Mark rides and coaches locally in Thousand Oaks, California, where he lives with his wife, Teresa. For more information about his teaching philosophy, please visit www.mountainbikeskills.com.
