About the Book
From the perspective of a quarter-century, this book takes a fun and poignant look back at a historical event that shaped not only the growing sport of mountain biking, but a proud, outdoors-oriented town in Southwest Colorado. Author John Peel interviews the men and women behind the scenes, the racers who battled for medals, the competitors who crashed and bled. Did Ned Overend and Greg Herbold feel the pressure? Read their emotional recollections of an event that changed their lives.
