Rebecca Rusch is the Queen of Pain with a heart of gold. It doesn’t matter if Rebecca is pedaling through the night on an epic adventure across Italy, riding her bike up Africa’s legendary Mt. Kilimanjaro, or teaching clinics and camps at a #JoinTheRusch camp or clinic, she brings energy, positivity and inspiration to whatever challenge she meets. As a professional athlete for over three decades, the 7x World Champion has continually tested her own limits, and shattered the glass ceiling in whatever sport she tackles. She redefined the team dynamics of adventure racing, has a first female ascent rock climbing El Capitan in Yosemite, river boarded down the Grand Canyon, and has given the men a run for their money in endurance mountain biking. Rusch’s work extends beyond the start line as the best selling author of Rusch to Glory, event producer for Rebecca’s Private Idaho, motivational speaker, firefighter, and cycling advocate. Additionally, she has raised over $100k for bike related charities through her adventures and events. In 2017, a full length feature film will be released, following Rebecca’s very personal and epic journey along the 1,800 kilometer Ho Chi Minh trail through Red Bull Media House.

Rebecca's presentation:

What does your bike mean to you?  As we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the invention of the bicycle this year, we look back and how bikes have always been and continue to be the most amazing vehicle for connecting people and places.  Rebecca will take you on a journey of some of her most important rides that didn’t include championship medals, a time clock or other competitors.  From Kilimanjaro to Laos, this presentation will make you want to set out on two wheels to explore both your inner spirit and the world we live in.
