Summary
Drawing on interviews, participant observation, ethnography, research on sports in the media and advertising, and editorial content in adventure sport magazines, the author examines why people participate in lifestyle or adventure sports, focusing on triathlons and mountain biking, and the role of social structure and individual agency. He reviews studies related to sport and adventure sport, as well as key theories related to structure and agency, then addresses the meaning of adventure in modern life and the quest for authentic experiences among athletes; the role of discipline; types and characteristics of adventure sport athletes; resistance to acts of sporting discipline; and the role of race, class, and gender in participation
