Sun Valley, ID – July 6, 2011 – Sun Valley professional mountain biker, Rebecca Rusch, two-time Leadville Trail 100 Women’s Champ and three-time 24 Hour Solo Mountain Biking World Champion, is bringing the epic movie chronicling the 2010 Leadville 100 MTB Race to Sun Valley, as part of the festivities during the USA Cycling National MTB Championships.

In 2009, “Race Across the Sky” captured the imagination of countless mountain bike enthusiasts when Lance Armstrong not only won the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, but set a new course record that seemed
 unattainable. This year, “Race Across the Sky 2010” delves into the resulting race entry boom, including record numbers of citizen riders, all with their own personal reasons for challenging themselves to this epic test
 of will, strength and endurance. Joined by the toughest elite field this high-altitude century race has ever seen, these riders are tested by one of the most brutal courses known to the sport. From the center of the little 
mining town of Leadville, Colorado, to the 12,570-foot top of Columbine 
Mine, get ready to be inspired all over again.

The reigning and two-time Lifetime Fitness Leadville Trail Women’s Champion and three time World 24 hr Champion knows a thing or two about pain. Drawing from a background in adventure racing, Rebecca has a deep well of skills: paddling, rock climbing, biking, navigating, skiing, and more. Since turning pro in 2001, Rebecca has proven to the world she has what it takes to execute any of the above even after going beyond her limits in faraway places like Kyrgyzstan and Tibet. After winning adventure races became routine, she added 24 Hour Solo Mountain Bike racing to her résumé and proceeded to dominate the sport. Rusch writes regularly about her adventures and training and her thoughts can be found at
