Chronology is a 176 page timeless photo journey through the 2009 UCI World Cup mountain bike racing season.
Gary Perkin and Sven Martin, two of mountain biking's most prolific and respected photographers capture the moments of anguish, action and triumph as the World Cup circuit travels the globe.
You will be pulled into each cross country, four cross and downhill World Cup event of 2009. The images of Sven and Gary go hand-in-hand with the stories written by the World Cup series winners themselves to capture each World Cup round, while newly crowned downhill World Champion, Steve Peat, shares some personal words conveying his emotion of winning the pinnacle World Championship event in Canberra, Australia.
This hardcover coffee table book contains many exclusive, unseen photographs saved for those with an affinity for mountain biking, racing and an appreciation for the photographic art.
2009 will go down in history as the most exciting racing season the sport has ever seen and Chronology aims to capture all the action from the season opener in Africa to the nail-biting finals in Austria with all points in between in a mix of full color and black and white, large format glory.
Carl and Frank (hence Crank Brothers) have always been keen MTBers. Ever since they were engineers working for a diving equipment company in Southern California in the late 1980s, they have been exploring ideas of how they could design cycling products that would improve their riding experience. In 1994 they launched their first product: the highly innovative “Speed Lever”. This telescopic tyre lever made installing/removing tyres from rims much easier. The M series mini tools and the Power Pump range of mini hand pumps followed 4 years later; the latter including the proprietary “high volume/high pressure” switch that is still appreciated today. The brand’s breakthrough, however, came when Crank Brothers launched the Eggbeater pedal in 2001: an extremely lightweight, minimalist pedal with superb mud-shedding capability and 4-sided entry. It is this same pedal platform that paved the way for subsequent pedal models to cover all MTB disciplines – Candy, Mallet and 5050. Today many of the top athletes in the World ride crankbrothers pedals. You will find they are well represented at top level cross-country MTB, Cyclo-cross and World Cup DH events. Innovative design of aesthetically disruptive products remains the core mission. All crankbrothers products are technical, durable and beautiful.
