Editorial Reviews

Review

“It’s hard to imagine any cyclocross racer—or potential racer—who wouldn’t find a way to get faster by reading Burney’s new edition. Burney gave the classic cyclocross book a thorough make-over. Equipment, training and technique sections were all brought up-to-date by a writer who is involved in the sport at its highest levels."—Cyclocrossworld.com
 
"What Simon Burney doesn't know about cyclocross isn't worth knowing at all!"—Ian Field, British Championship medallist
 
"Cyclocross Training and Technique by Simon Burney gives an excellent compilation of information and experience for everyone involved with the exciting cycling discipline."Peter Van den Abeele, Union Cycliste Internationale Cyclocross Coordinator, former Belgian Elite National Champion, Two-time Olympian
 
"Simon Burney knows cyclocross inside out. He writes with authority based on his experience as a rider, coach, and team manager. This is the book for 'cross enthusiasts from novice to elite levels."—Liam Killeen, World Mountain Bike Champion (U23) and British National Cyclocross Champion (U23) and Elite Silver Medallist
 
"Burney has updated the venerable 'cross Bible from top to bottom. It might not be a sacrilege to call it a NEW testament! This new edition provides advice for women, juniors, and cross-overs from mountain bike or road bike racing. There is no doubt that all racers or potential racers will find something of interest and value in cyclocross. The technique sections are improved with new photos (many featuring Tim Johnson), and his equipment advice is knowledgeable, specific and opinionated, just how I like it."—Steve Frothingham, Pezcyclingnews.com
 
"I scored myself a copy of Simon Burney's original hardback edition of Cyclocross long before I ever bought an actual cyclocross bike, reasoning that a guy doesn't join a congregation without reading its bible."—Patrick O'Grady, Mad Dog Media

    I absolutely loved reading this book. It was a very easy but informative book. I have been thinking about racing cyclocross and this book has given me all the advice I needed to dive right into the sport. I highly recommend this book to all age groups. It talks about everything from racing, training, nutrition, and products. Well worth the investment

    This book is really tailored towards those who want to get into Cyclocross seriously. The first part of the book does have helpful information about starting out but then it gets much more advanced.

    There are a lot of things different about racing cyclocross from road or mtb racing. This book encapsulates them all and gives history of the sport, race prep, and workout suggestions as well as cluing one in on technique. Sure you can surf the web for hours to get the same info but this book is well worth the price. I have recommended it to several beginning racers and experienced racers on our team.
