Since the 1970‘s, the sport has grown tremendously and there are now different types of mountain biking for different terrains and purposes. However, the most popular type of mountain biking is still the traditional cross country style, where the rider will generally need to climb and descend a variety of hills on different terrains including paved and dirt terrains.
Mountain bike riders need to learn a variety of skills. Aside from having to learn how to handle a bike while riding over sometimes difficult topography, riders must also learn how to repair broken bikes and flat tires while on the trail so that they do not find themselves stranded out in the middle of nowhere. Survival skills do come into play as well as many riders go on trails and on group rides, sometimes for rather lengthy treks.
Dirt jump is just what the name implies. It involves riding on a dirt track, jumping over hills and dirt obstacles. This is also a competition category for mountain biking that is very popular.
