The only book to specifically equip young bike racers for competitive racing, Bike Racing for Juniors highlights the unique needs of young athletes.

Authors Kristen Dieffenbach and Steve McCauley take into account all of the considerations of young cyclists with a thorough discussion of every aspect of training from skill building and weight training to psychological development, and injury treatment and prevention.

Friel is renown for his proven methodology, which is based on science and built around the individual rider. Off-road cyclists, from novice to professional levels, will become more successful with Friel’s scientific approach to mountain biking.
