Below is an extract from the interview

Rebecca Rusch on the Leadville 100:
My nickname's the Queen of Pain so I tend to do well at things that are really long and difficult and 2009 the weather was hideous, it was raining and showing, I'm not sure if there's something in me, the harder the event the better I seem to do. And it's really special - there's 1500-2000 racers there so the energy you get is really unique.

A lot of the time I'm out in the wilderness alone and you're just relying on your head for motivation but this one there's people everywhere cheering - it's really like the Tour De France of Mountain biking."
