Blood Road Virginia Premiere, Red Bull Media House
We are excited to kick off Dominion Energy Riverrock with the Red Bull Film Premier, which this year will be screening the Red Bull Media House film, Blood Road.
Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal: to reach the crash site and final resting place of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos over 40 years earlier. During this poignant voyage of self discovery, the women push their bodies to the limit while learning more about the historic ‘Blood Road’ and how the Vietnam War shaped their lives in different ways.
Not only will Rebecca be featured on the screen but she will actually be joining us in person at the Red Bull Film Premier of Blood Road!

ABOUT DOMINION RIVERROCK
What better way to celebrate the Richmond riverfront than at the nation’s largest outdoor sports and music festival?!

From music to mud pits, bikes to beer, SUPs to pups, and climbing to kayaks, it’s uniquely RVA! Rock the day and night away, watch professional athletes thrill the crowd, and maybe even get a little dirty yourself. This isn’t your typical festival, but we’re not your typical town!
