If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I am a keen MTB rider and I post a lot of photos of mountain biking on there. I have been a rider since I was a small boy and I do ride at least 10 times a week, it’s a true passion for me.
The sport of mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross country (XC), trail riding, all mountain, downhill, freeride, slopestyle, dirt jumping, and trials. The vast majority of mountain biking falls into the recreational XC,Trail Riding and Enduro categories. The whole experience of the sport does require a lot of endurance, balance, core strength and good handling skills and you can see this in the photos in this gallery. Mountain biking has been an Olympic event since 1996.
Here is a collection of awesome high-octane mountain biking photography.
