Rebecca Rusch Wins Leadville 100 — Again!

For the second year in a row, Rebecca Rusch took top spot among women in the Leadville 100 mountain bike race, one of the most grueling and high-profile races on the mountain bike tour, which was held in and around Leadville, CO, this past weekend.

Rebecca’s winning time of 7:47:35 set a new course record, destroying the previous record, held by Laurie Brandt, by more than 11 minutes. The next closest racer behind Rusch was Amanda Carey, who came in at 8:12:54.

“Another win at Leadville is a huge. This race is just unreal,” said Rusch quoted in a post on Bike World News. “I’ve been training with this being my main goal all year. Still, I surprised myself.  I wanted the course record, but I didn’t expect to beat it by 11 minutes. This was the most painful day I had on a bike, but it was worth it.”

Congratulations Rebecca!
