Rebecca Rusch is now 42 years old and keeps getting faster. She’ll be honored as the www.singletrack.com Mountain Biker of the Year at Endurance Live on January 22nd for winning her second consecutive Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race and breaking the long standing course record. Rebecca has an incredibly diverse background that stretches from high school and college cross country to seven day adventure races like the Eco Challenge and Raid Gauloises to Outrigger racing and cross country ski racing. She has also won three 24 Hour Solo Mountain Bike World Championships. No wonder she is called The Queen of Pain.
