Tour Dates Set For Mountain Town Movie Tour

Leadville Trail 100 Champ to Host Mountain Town Movie Tour of “Race Across the Sky” Rebecca Rusch, a KT Tape sponsored athlete and three-time reigning 24-Hour Solo Mountain Biking World Champion, will host a five-stop Mountain Town Movie Tour of Race Across The Sky, the new documentary about one of the most intense endurance mountain bike races of all time, the Leadville Trail 100. The tour is the fist opportunity for many core cycling communities in the Rockies to view the inspirational documentary. This inspirational film has been shown in larger cities, but has not yet been seen in the core cycling communities of the Rocky Mountain West.  Rebecca was in New York City for the film’s premiere.  The first screening was intended to be a “one time only” event, but after sold-out showings and multiple requests from cyclists and friends, Rebecca 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.  Here is the official tour schedule:
  • 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.  Rebecca 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, Adventure Medical Kits, and KT Tape. “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.” 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.  Rebecca 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.  Click here to see a trailer of the film.
