Saturday, August 13 was a gorgeous day in Leadville, CO. It was also the day that Suunto athlete Rebecca Rusch smashed her own record in the Leadville Trail 100 ... winning the famed mountain bike race for the third time in a row.
Reba rolled across the finish line with a time of 7:31:45, almost 16 minutes faster than the course record she herself set in 2010. Rusch spent the first half of the rugged Rocky Mountain race in fifth place, charging up the epic Columbine climb to take the lead.
"I'm a diesel, so it takes me a while to get going sometimes," says Rusch in this cyclingnews.com article.
And 'get going' she did, once again conquering a race that is no small feat: 103 miles long at an elevation of 10,152 feet.
We knew you could, Reba -- congrats on another record-breaking win!
