Ruthie Matthes now in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame

Last week, Colorado cyclists, Ruthie Matthes was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Ruthie's 19 year career landed her many times on the podium and eventually landing her in her new home town of Durango Colorado, the place she won her World Mountain Bike Championship in 1991. It was truly a delight to meet Ruthie at Interbike and while she might not be competing anymore her energy is uplifting to be around. Congrats Ruthie!
