Rebecca Rusch and other SRAM athletes give fans a chance to pre-ride the course with the pros
Ketchum, ID – May 25, 2011 – Rebecca Rusch, the two-time Leadville Trail 100 Women’s Champ and three-time 24 Hour Solo Mountain Biking World Champion, is making her next stop on the SRAM Gold Rusch Tour at the Beti Bike Bash in Lakewood, CO on June 11-12, 2011. Rebecca and SRAM female athletes Heather Irmiger, Krista Park, Lindsay Voreis, Jenny Smith and Lynn Bush will host a pre-ride and Q&A session on Saturday June 11th from 10am-2pm at the race site in Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, CO. The SRAM team will be present at the SRAM expo booth all weekend, signing posters and giving away swag.
The SRAM Ride Experience featuring 2×10 MTB Drivetrain Sprinter Van will also be at the expo, offering demos of 2×10 bikes for women.
The 2nd Annual Beti Bike Bash is Colorado’s first women’s-only Mountain Bike Race. With more than 160 women competing last year, the 2011 race is set to be even bigger! The SRAM Gold Rusch Tour is designed to encourage women across the country to get outdoors and on their bicycles.
“The Beti Bike Bash is a perfect addition to the SRAM Gold Rusch Tour. It’s super inspiring to have mountain bike races specifically for women,” says Rebecca Rusch. “I can’t wait to see these ladies tear it up!”
Rebecca is also hosting a screening of the 2010 Race Across the Sky documentary of the Leadville Trail 100 race prior to the Beti Bike Bash. All the proceeds benefit the Colorado Off Road Mountain Bike Association and IMBA.
