The Adventure Podcast Episode 103: An Interview with Adventure Athlete Rebecca Rusch
This week on The Adventure Podcast, we welcome adventure athlete Rebecca Rusch to the show. Rebecca has been one of the most outstanding and inspiring personalities in the adventure space for years, starting as a world-class adventure racer, before turning her attention solely to mountain biking. Since then, her career has only continued to impress as she has ridden her bike up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro, taken part in some of the biggest mountain bike races in the world, and proceed an Emmy-award winning documentary of her ride along the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Vietnam called Blood Road, which you can watch for free here. In the interview, Rebecca tells us about her recent foray into the Iditarod Trail Challenge in Alaska, while also telling us about her nonprofit organization the Be Good Foundation and her Rusch Academy. This was our longest interview yet, but there was still so much we could have talked about. We hope you enjoy it.
In our weekly Adventure News segment, Dave and Kraig talk about the world' first "Everesting" triathlon, a hungry polar bear boarding a Russian fishing ship, and the COVID-19 coronavirus unfortunately making its way into the Amazon Rainforest. Later, Dave and Kraig share their Gear Picks, with Kraig offering thoughts on the Sherpa Adventure Gear Gurkhali pants made from Dyneema, while Dave discusses his new Yakima FullTilt bike rack.
