Our new featured blogger, Rebecca Rusch (Specialized/Red Bull) led the women’s field through the Leadville 100 mountain bike race and took a stunning win over fellow veteran Amanda Carey. Rusch is the 2009 24-Hour Mountain Bike World Champion, and just joined legend Lance Armstrong to top the field in the Leadville 100 with a 14-minute lead. Racers battled through thunderstorms yet finished in 60-degree weather and sunny skies.

Armstrong set a new record. We’re waiting on Rusch’s time, and will update you shortly. We’re pleased to have Rusch as the Ski Channel’s expert mountain girl, and are so proud! Congratulations Rebecca!!!
