Our new blogger and mountain It-Girl, Rebecca Rusch has won her third straight 24-Hour Solo Mountain Bike World Championship! The race took place this weekend (July 25 and 26) in Canmore, Alberta, Canada and featured 150 of the best solo riders from fourteen countries.

It’s the ultimate test of endurance as athletes race continuously over 24 hours (and we mean 1440 minutes of grueling trail riding) without cease. Rusch, one of the most winning adventure racers ever won the 2007 and 2008 24-Hour World Championship titles as well.

The Sun Valley resident has also won several eco-challenges, and has completed the infamous Raides Gauloise. Look for her blog here on the Ski, as Rusch continues to take the world by storm.
