ABOUT THIS BOOK

Road bike racing rules in this action-packed adventure perfect for cycling fans, readers of the popular Five Ancestors series, and anyone who loves a fast-paced page-turner.
 
Ryan Vanderhausen is psyched. After his mountain biking disaster, he discovers that his size and strength make him a natural for road bike racing. So he and his friends Phoenix, Jake, and Hú Dié head to California to train with Ryan’s cousin Peter. But right away, things get weird. Experienced cyclists are dropping dead, and someone from the kids’ past pays them a very unwelcome visit. Then Peter is kidnapped in the middle of San Francisco’s Chinatown. Can the kids save Peter, evade the bad guys, and still manage to compete in their biggest race yet?


From the Hardcover edition.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

JEFF STONE lives in the Midwest with his wife, their two children, and a python named Yokwan (Cantonese for "Jade Bangle"). He holds a black belt in Shaolin-Do kung fu. While he's active in several forms of bike racing, mountain biking is his favorite. Jeff has been to San Francisco's Chinatown many times, but he has yet to meet any four-hundred-year-old apothecaries. (At least, that's what he tells people.)
