Extreme Mountain Biking For The Extreme Adrenalin Rush


Author: Bob Sheehan
Extreme Mountain Biking is a sport where bikers ride their beasts in extreme situations enjoying every bit of adrenalin rush. Trial riding and street riding are urban games and are examples of such mountain biking. Extreme biking is an exclusive sport, which demands a lot of courage, patience and self- reliance.



During the past few years, nobody has heard so much about the mountain bikes. But presently, mountain biking is in vogue. Mountain bikes can be enjoyed on different terrains, with equal ease. Mountain bike riders use their bikes for various competitions and programs.



Extreme biking can be divided into five categories: Cross Country, Downhill, Free riding, Dirt Jumping, and Street Riding. The most popular terrains for mountain biking are rocky roads, gravel road and inhospitable tracks. But most of the mountain bike riders prefer to ride ‘single tracks’, that are narrow pathways, carved through fields or forests.



Downhill Races



Downhill races have typical staggered start to lower the chances of crashing. The bikers ride down the hill with a matchless speed. Many Downhill races are organized in ski slopes during the summer. Downhill races demand the ultimate skill from the riders, who can maneuver their bikes extremely well. Bikes meant for downhill races are well fitted with front and rear suspension, large brakes and heavier frame tubing. These bikes should never be dragged up the hill. For this reason racers and riders of downhill make frequent use of trucks and ski hills to be transported at the top of the mountain. This extreme form of mountain race biking demands a great physiological challenge.



Dirt jumping mountain biking



Dirt jumping is more common with BMX experts. Dirt biking experts compete to exhibit the biggest, the amazing and the most astounding jumps in the air while they spin with their bikes doing flips and other stunts. You will gaze while the biker is busy taking the stunts in the air.



Bike trails



Another most extreme mountain bike riding is bike trails. This is a course of cycling action where you are made to navigate through unimaginable rough terrains without even letting your feet have the slightest ground contact. The riders performing bike trails should know how to balance their bikes on rails, boulders, posts, tree stumps and a variety of other dangerous obstacles.



Cross country races



This form of race usually covers 30 miles and it can be performed on several rough and rugged land surfaces. The cross-country racers start off together just as the participants of marathons do.



The other extreme varieties of mountain biking include park biking, urban biking and freeride biking.



Once you develop a passion for biking competitions you should at once start making arrangements with practice and get into the perfect shape. Remember, extreme mountain bike rides are not meant for beginners.



When you are prepared to take on with such rides, you should always stay alert while performing the stunts. You must also be careful about wearing helmets and pads because an inch of carelessness can make you suffer for the rest of your life.
