Description:

Road racers use teamwork and power to gap the peloton, trackies rely on skills and savvy to dominate the velodrome, and downhillers need strength and mental skills to bomb down the slopes at top speed. Cycling is a sport with something for everyone. But from the daredevils breaking mountain biking records to the speed demons leading the final sprints at the Tour de France, all cyclists have one thing in common: They had to start at the beginning.
