It is becoming a reality in soccer that the club with the largest bankroll becomes the one that gets all the winnings.
Soccer is one of the greatest sports in the world and there is no doubt about it but one cannot deny the fact that there are times when other sports become equally exciting or maybe even better at some point.
Mountain biking is one good option, something that you might end up loving more than soccer.
That being said, MUDSA created an honest comparison between soccer and mountain biking so we’ll know if mountain biking can also be worth a try against the beautiful game. Here are 3 reasons why mountain biking can be a better option.
You do not need 22 players
In football, there is a need for at least 10 players so you can enjoy a decent game. However, in mountain biking, all you need is another man who is equally willing to spend his time riding with you.
But, if you do not have someone to accompany you, who says riding alone would not be fun too?
Professional bikers are better sportsmen
They fall but they get up immediately even if they crash hard, and they get back onto the track and finish what they have started. This scenario is very different from what you can see in the soccer field where players stay lying on the pitch even with only the slightest of collisions.
There are no rules
Another good thing about mountain biking is that you are not restricted by rules, unlike in football where every step you make should be aligned with the rules of the game or else you get a card or are sent off. In biking, you can do whatever you want and enjoy the ride.
Soccer is the number one sport in the world but it would not hurt to look at other options to play with. Mountain biking is worth the try because of the reasons mentioned above.
