    Mountain Bikers Training Bible

    I bought this thinking I needed it to get into shape. Realized it's way over my head (which isn't saying much). Didn't realize who the target audience was.
    is anyone interested in having this book?

    Seems pretty simple statement to figure out even for a redneck. He bought a book, found out he does not suit his needs. Now is asking if anyone is interested in this book. So he can either sell the book or give it away to someone that will get some use out of it.


    I tapped that

    Hmmm, I'm curious, what is the book about? Is it mainly about high level training (nutrition, daily routine, etc?) or technique?

    I'm guessing this is it.

    Exactly. Very through and hard core. Wasn't what I thought it would be.

    I tried to sell my (perfect condition) copy via craiglist for $7 a few years back. No one was interested...

    Good luck!

    the book really isn't worth all that much

    Joe Friel's Blog: New Training Bibles

    "Nelson--No plans for a revised MTB Training Bible. I haven't coached a MTBer in 10 years so don't feel qualified to write about it now. Good luck!"

    Great book for anyone interested in endurance (50+ miles) type mountain bike training and racing. I read mine cover to cover a few years ago and still refer back to it regularly.

    And Joe Friel's blog continues to be a concise and fascinating source of knowledge on the science of endurance sports.

    This stuff isn't for everyone, and Joe Friel certainly isn't the only resource, but it's sure made a huge difference in my riding strength and stamina.
