The reigning and three-time Leadville Trail 100 Women's Champion and three-time World 24 hr Champion knows a thing or two about pain. Drawing from a background in adventure racing, Rebecca has a deep well of skills: paddling, rock climbing, biking, navigating, skiing, and more. Since turning pro in 2001, Rebecca has proven to the world she has what it takes to execute any of the above even after going beyond her limits in faraway places like Kyrgyzstan and Tibet. After winning adventure races became routine, she added 24 Hour Solo Mountain Bike racing to her résumé and proceeded to dominate the sport. Rusch writes regularly about her adventures and training and her thoughts can be found at
