About this title
Dale Holmes has always loved to ride a bike. He got his first one when he was four years old and hasnt been far from a bicycle since. Over thirty years later, BMX racing is his life. BMX jumps and turns can take their toll physically, but Dale loves to compete, so he trains hard and takes any injuries in stride. Now that BMX racing is an Olympic sport, the number of boys and girls racing will increase. Dale feels its important to help teach young people safe ways to ride and win races.Find out how Dale got his start, how he trains for his sport, and about his Olympic dreams in this action-packed AUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHYFrom Booklist:
Part of the new Robbie Reader: Extreme Sports, this book nicely balances a brief biography of BMX bike racer Dale Holmes with a glimpse into the sport and the life of a professional athlete. Beginning with an exciting account of a competition, the text dips back to Holmes' English childhood, followed by his rise to professional status and his training regime, noting his diet and fitness requirements. The vocabulary words, such as adrenaline, with pronunciation guides, interrupt the flow of the text, but the color images, short chapters, and sports action will draw plenty of interested kids. The accessible language seems geared to elementary students, but the pared-down format (just text and images, with few of the whimsical graphics common in books for the young) makes this a good choice for struggling readers in the upper grades. Back matter includes a chronology, a glossary, and recommended resources. Gillian Engberg
