This is an instruction manual for emerging cyclocross competitors. Simon Burney lays down all the how to's and wherefores of Cyclocross in clear straightforward detail, which because it is straightforward, and detailed, can be a tad dry, so It is not a cover to cover page turner. It is however an excellent guide to getting started, equipment, techniques, training basics, and more.

Cyclocross Training + Techniques by Simon Burney

Liberally illustrated in black and white, the images relate to, and actually illustrate, the content being discussed on the page. Unlike some "How To's" which leave you wondering exactly what the author / photographer was trying to show and having to reread the same paragraph, or two, time and again to discern the intent of the illustration, this book speaks to the photos and the photos speak to the book.

While, as I said, it is not a page turner (although if you are a cross zealot it might just be) it may well be one of the best stand alone teaching guides I have read on a race discipline thus far.

By the way, the forward by Richard Fries and 'crossword by Patrick (MadDog) O'Grady are, alone, worth the price.
