You knew Leipheimer won the Leadville 100 mountain bike race, but can you name the women’s winner? She came in 22nd overall beating a number of male competitors. Nice article from Bike Intelligencer on fast women in cycling with a focus on Rebecca Rusch.–Corrie

Rebecca Rusch is stoked. She’s stoked at winning the Leadville 100 for the second year in a row. She’s stoked at winning the Cascade Creampuff 100, Trans Andes, Tour of Patagonia and the Galena Grinder. And taking silver in the Sea Otter Classic pro women’s Super D, fourth in the Ashland Super D and Whiskey 50 Miler, and 6th in the Firecracker 50.
