Dirty Kanza Talk: Rebecca Rusch

We sit down and chat with the former winner on her plans for this year's new event

Dirty Kanza brings out a massive group of cyclists that have different backgrounds, new goals in mind and overall mainly cyclists looking for a challenge. Speaking of new goals we had the opportunity to sit down with Rebecca Rusch where the 7X World Champion has already won the Dirty Kanza 200 three times and now looks to embark on the new 350-mile event here in Emporia.

Other than training for long-distance events Rebecca keeps herself busy with her own event, Rebecca’s Private Idaho Weekend which takes place August 31st – September 2nd.

Listen to our interview below where we chat it up with her preparations on her upcoming big ride, how she set up her bike to handle the excursion and everything else she is up to.
