Mountain Biking posted by Extreme

Mountain biking is considered an extreme sport, and it has become increasingly popular in the past few years. The sport involves riding specially designed bicycles off road, especially over very rough terrain. These bicycles are specially designed for high durability and for performing well on rough terrain. Riders wear protective gear and often carry a backpack that contains water, supplies, and equipments and tools needed for repairing the bike. There are various championships held all over the world for mountain biking, and the sport has been included in the Olympics since 1996.

There are various mountain biking categories, and the main ones include trials riding, cross-country, downhill, dirt jumping, and free ride.

Trials Riding

This involves, jumping and hopping the bike over various obstacles, without letting the feet touch the ground. This can be played in an urban or off-road environment. The rider must have very good balance, and should known techniques for overcoming different obstacles. Trial bikes have wheels measuring 26, 24, or 20 inches, and some bikes do not have a saddle.

Cross Country

This involves riding the bike between two points or in a circuit, and the ride will include descents and climbs over different types of terrain. For this category, an XC bike is used, which weighs about nine to thirteen kilograms, and has 0 to five inches suspension at the front, and sometimes at the rear as well.


As the name suggests, this is mainly riding the bike downhill. Riders have to travel to the point of descent by means other than cycling. The bike used for downhill riding has a heavier frame, equipped with larger disc brakes, and has suspensions at the front and rear. Since the terrain is usually quite steep, downhill riding is considered the most dangerous and extreme amongst the different categories of mountain biking.

Inbound link contest - Win $100! posted by Earn Money Blogging

To try and motivate our bloggers to get inbound links we're going to have a contest to see which blogger can get the most inbound links to their blog. The contest begins now and ends July 31st, 2008. To be entered in to the contest all you have to do is go out and get as many websites to link to your blog as you can and at the end of the month send us an email listing all those links. All links must be active from August 1st through August 7th when we'll be judging the entries - a winner will be announced on August 7th. All entry emails must be received by Midnight on July 31st, 2008. You can email them to

We're going to impose some restrictions on the types of links you can get so please see below for the full list of links that do NOT count.

To get started simply go to Google and find other websites and blog that are about the sports and teams that you write about. Email the website owner and ask them for a link by explaining that you think your blog would be a good resource for their readers. Or offer to write a guest post for them with your by-line and URL at the bottom of the article. Or offer to exchange links with them by writing a quick write up of their site and a reciprocal link back to them. Some webmasters will be happy to add you to their blog roll even if you don't give them a link back (which is ideal) but some may want you to link back to them - you can easily do this with a quick blog entry on your blog about their website.
