    Rebecca Rusch: The Explorer's Guide to Self-Discovery

    1:35:55

    This week’s conversation is with Rebecca Rusch, a 7x-world champion in the ultra adventure/endurance realm and a member of the prestigious international Mountain Bike Hall of Fame.Rebecca has been recognized by Outside Magazine among the Top 40 Women Who’ve Made the Biggest Impact and by Men’s Journal as one of the 25 Most Adventurous Women.Known for seeking the toughest challenges imaginable and pushing herself into unknown territory has yielded Rebecca many firsts...Notably, the first female ascent on Yosemite’s 3000-ft. El Capitan Bermuda Dunes route and a first descent river boarding 300 miles of the entire Grand Canyon in 18 winter days.On two wheels, she is the only female competitor to win the iconic Leadville 100 four times and is a two time, first female finisher at the Iditarod Trail Invitational, pedaling 350 self-supported miles through the Alaskan wilderness.  Most recently she completed a previously unattempted North to South route traversing Iceland in winter by fatback alongside Chris Burkard and Angus Morton.  So I think it begs the question.. why?Why go to these lengths? What is she searching for? What do these expeditions reveal?That’s what this conversation is about.----Please support our partners!We're able to keep growing and creating content for YOU because of their support.
