Award-winning mountain bike documentary ‘Blood Road’ is now available to stream

Saturday, Red Bull Media released their award-winning, full-length mountain biking documentary “Blood Road.”

The film follows the ways in which a mountain bike can be used as a vehicle for self-exploration and discovery.

Eschewing the typical mountain bike videos that feature hard charging, massive airs and tons of riding, “Blood Road” follows professional mountain biker Rebecca Rusch on her quest to bike the entirety of the 1,120-mile Ho Chi Minh Trail through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Her goal? To find the crash site of her father, Capt. Steven Rusch, who was shot down in the Vietnam War when Rebecca was just three years old, and to discover the circumstances surrounding his death.

Red Bull also just released another short edit, “A Bomb’s Journey.”

“‘Bomb’s Journey’ captures Rebecca’s return to Laos to work with the majority-female teams who spend their days clearing deadly unexploded ordnance (UXO), as she raises money for the clearance and awareness of the issue with non-profit partners at Mines Advisory Group and Article 22,” Red Bull says in their press release.

The full feature film “Blood Road” is available now for streaming on Red Bull TV.
