We've been lucky to get a lot of attention from a great crew of media- even been called, "The Game Changer in Gravel Grinding".  Here's what people are saying...

THIS IDAHO STAGE RACE IS A CELEBRATION OF GRAVEL RIDING 

The Rebecca's Private Idaho Queen's Stage Race Delivers Four Days of Racing, Riding, Stagecoach Watching and Good Old-Fashioned Gelande Quaffing in the Pioneer Mountains.

GRAVEL DISPATCH: HAPPY SOLITUDE AT REBECCA'S PRIVATE IDAHO 

Idaho is the kind of place you’d go to be alone, and in the middle of a gravel race of 1,000 people, I somehow managed to do just that.

EASTWARD HO! REBECCA'S NOT SO PRIVATE IDAHO!

But let’s talk about the Queen’s Stage Race. Last year I was lucky enough to be part of a small crew of riders who got to test Rebecca’s new gravel race format, so I knew what to expect when I toed the line Thursday with 140 other excited race pioneers, or at least I thought I did. Rebecca Rusch being Rebecca Rusch means that she never settles for good. 

MOUNTAIN BIKER REBECCA RUSCH IS SHATTERING EXPECTATIONS FOR FEMALE RIDERS

 Rebecca's Private Idaho wasn't conceived solely as a means of getting more women into cycling, but it has attracted an impressive number of female racers that bests just about any mixed-gender bike event around: A stunning 35 percent of the entrants were women in 2018 – a 5 percent increase over what has been a 30 percent standard every year since RPI's inception.

She then mentions that even though they are expecting more than 1,000 riders tomorrow, everyone will still experience those moments of aloneness and exploration on their bikes. Once the route leaves town and climbs into the Lost River Basin you find yourself just about as close to nowhere as you’d ever want to be. No cars, no cellphone coverage—just you and the sound of your breathing.
