Rebecca Rusch, also known as “The Queen of Pain,” has been an athlete her entire life. Most recently, at the age of 38, she became a professional ultra-endurance mountain biker. In 2015, Rebecca retraced the entire length of the Ho Chi Minh trail. With her riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, they pedaled a grueling 1,200 miles to locate where Rebecca’s father’s plane was shot down during the Vietnam War. The journey became the focus of Rebecca’s documentary “Blood Road.” It was the most physically trying ride of Rebecca’s life and it became the catalyst for Rebecca using her bicycle as a tool for change.
