Few athletes have as storied and varied, a career as Rebecca Rusch. With championship titles in whitewater rafting, adventure racing, a master’s cross-country skiing world championship, three 24-hour mountain world championships, and multiple victories at Leadville and Dirty Kanza, Rusch has amassed an impressive resume and earned her nickname “The Queen of Pain” through blood, sweat, and determination. And that’s not even including the Emmy award she won for her 2017 documentary, “Blood Road.”
Rusch has ridden for Specialized and, most recently, for Niner. Heading into 2020, Rusch has partnered with Liv and Giant to chart a new course for her athletic endeavors.
“Partnering with Liv Cycling and Giant Bicycles aligns seamlessly with my commitment to push the limits of cycling and use bikes to Be Good,” said Rusch, referring to her Be Good nonprofit foundation’s mission to enrich communities through bicycling. “I’m convinced that if everyone could spend more time on a bike, the world would be a better place,” she added.
