Never Retire with Rebecca Rusch (Episode 2)

In this Episode

Traditionally athletes in their 40s (and certainly their 50s) are supposed to retire and find something else to do. Not seven-time world champion Rebecca Rusch, who didn’t even start racing professionally as a mountain biker until age 38, and proceeded to rack up national and world victories, win Leadville 100 four times, DK200 three times, and crushed the first 350-mile DKXL gravel race at age 50. Talking menopause for the first time, Rebecca Rusch reveals what her transition through “the change” has been like and what she prioritizes now to continue hitting personal bests and pursue her passion. She’s living proof that midlife can be a time when women can truly hit their stride.
