If you’re at all familiar with the mountain biking world, you’ve heard of Rebecca Rusch aka “The Queen of Pain”. She exemplifies what a HARDBODY female can be and has done so for years. She was named one of Outside Magazine’s Top Female athletes in 2003 and has an impressive set of victories that goes on longer than the trails she rides.
Top photographers are often given models of new cameras before they hit the market. They’re typically used in super-secret fashion and there are only a handful of them (the new cameras) in existence. Nikon called upon top photographer Corey Rich to show off the new Nikon D4′s capabilities. He was given free reign to create whatever he wished. Corey chose three athletes, one of which was Rebecca. She shared on her website, “He invited me to be part of the video from Nikon launching their new D4. The only thing is that the camera was so super top secret that we weren’t allowed to tell anyone what the shoot was for, or who we were working with.”
Check out the video and listen to Rebecca’s message throughout the video. You know you’re a hardbody when you say, “a 10 hour race would be a short race for me.”
