PRESS RELEASE: Rebecca Rusch, three-time reigning 24-Hour Solo Mountain Biking World Champion, will host a five-stop movie tour featuring Race Across The Sky, the new documentary film about one of the most intense endurance mountain bike races of all time, the Leadville Trail 100.

This inspirational film has been shown in larger cities, but has not yet been seen in the core cycling communities of the Mountain West. Rusch attended the film’s premiere in New York City. That screening was intended to be a one-time only event, but after sold-out showings and multiple requests from cyclists and friends, she decided to bring the film to a select group of mountain towns. The tour will kick off in Rebecca’s hometown of Sun Valley, Idaho, and includes these screenings:

  • Sun Valley ID, Thursday February 25
  • Missoula MT, Thursday March 11
  • Carbondale CO, Tuesday March 16
  • Park City UT, Thursday March 18
  • Jackson Hole WY, Thursday March 25

Presented by Specialized, each stop of the movie tour will be a fundraiser for International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) and its local chapter clubs. Rusch will be on hand for each screening to greet attendees and sign posters. She’ll also mingle with riders and fans and host a raffle with gear from tour sponsors, including Specialized, Ergon, Buff, Red Bull, and Adventure Medical Kits.

“I’m so excited to be a part of this film tour,” Rusch said. “The race itself was amazing. But to be able to share the experience through this film and bring it to cycling communities that are close to my heart is icing on the cake. The premiere showings were only in big cities, so I can’t wait to bring the film to these core cycling communities and also be able to support their local trail advocacy work.”

More About the Leadville 100

The Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race covers incredibly challenging terrain, climbing to 14,000 feet in elevation and dipping into the valleys in Leadville, Colorado. Rusch won the 2009 Leadville Trail 100 event, sharing the podium with Lance Armstrong. Race Across The Sky features candid conversations with elite and amateur riders during the 2009 race, including Rebecca, as they compete in one of the most high-profile mountain biking events in the sport.
