Rebecca Rusch Stage 3 Recap from South Africa

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

Check our Rebecca Rusch’s recap of  Stage 3 of the Cape Epic, a 685 km, 8-day mountain bike stage race in South Africa. The route passes through mountain and wine regions and features over 14,000 meters of climbing over the course of the week.  It’s the largest and most competitive stage race in the world and the team rosters are packed with 1200 athletes, including Olympians, pro riders, World Champions and regular cyclists.

Absa Cape Epic, Stage 3 – by Rebecca Rusch, Mar 24

Although relatively short at only 73k, stage three packed a wallop.  Just shy of half-way, we encountered a 2,000 ft climb, the vast majority of which was too steep, loose and rocky to ride. The summit ridge offered astonishing views of the incredible hill country known as The Overberg (over the mountains).  Although this climb was the crux of the day, it was by no means the only challenge.

Rebecca Rusch Wins USA Cyclist Season Opener in TX

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

The 2009 cycling season has begun, and Rebecca is off to a great start. Read her race recap of the season opener below…

Out of Hibernation – February, 2009
by Rebecca Rusch

Valentine’s day was the first race in the USA Cycling ultra endurance series. This 100k race held in Terlingua, TX was rumored to be fast, fun and full of personality. The snow’s still falling in Idaho and the majority of my current training consists of Nordic skiing, backcountry skiing and pushing steel in the gym. My mountain bike went into storage in mid November and my only cycling in the last few months has consisted of going nowhere in my living room on the trainer. The Mas o Menos 100km race presented the perfect opportunity for me to get some early season time on the dirt and to get a gauge on my winter training.
