Mountain Bike Racing
Very few people realize that bicycling has been a prevalent sport since the early nineteenth century. The racing of bicycles has spanned over centuries, only to get more popular as time goes on. The first known race took place in Paris, France on May 31, 1968. All of the cyclists used their wooden bicycles and went as fast as they could. The winner of that tournament was James Moore of England.
Even though people took to bicycle racing this early in history, mountain bike racing was only considered a sport by the Union Cycliste Internationale in 1990. As a matter of fact, the first race took place only 18 years ago in 1991!
If you want to get the full experience and test of your skills, however, doing a marathon mountain biking race is the best way to go. To get from beginning to end you have to cross an immense amount of rough terrain. The whole race can be over one hundred thousand miles in total. only the best of the best can aim for the world cup for this race.
