For the next two days, Red Bull is screening what they call the first-ever dedicated European bicycle film The Old World, showcasing fifteen unique cyclists that blur the lines from one style of riding to the next.

Shot all over the continent, the full-length film brings together 15 European riders from 7 countries and 8 different riding disciplines to tell their own riding stories…

Different to the usual action-led bike films, ‘The Old World‘ follows newcomer Bless Amada on a trip through a fantastic world of imagination that opens up to the wildest dreams of biking. Shot in a dedicated way, each country segment portrays a certain discipline and mindset in order to showcase Europe’s diverse riding culture and contrasting landscapes.

A Tillmann Brothers production for Red Bull. The Old World gets a free digital premiere, starting today for the next 48 hours through the weekend on Red Bull TV. Then it will disappear… at least until it returns for a bit longer some time later next year.
