Cyclo-cross has become increasingly popular in the United States and other countries outside of its traditional base in Northern Europe. With that comes the need for instruction on the highly technical discipline, and the gap has been filled by Colorado coach Scott Mares.
Mares, who has been running the American Cycling Associations' (ACA) cyclo-cross camps for nine years has helped to produce more than a dozen national champions and even a silver at the junior worlds championships.
"The Complete Book of Cyclo-cross, Skill Training and Racing" will be available on line at www.cx-book.com on September 1. The book will retail for $20.00. The web site is full of information about the book and the author including a sample chapter from the book.
