15 athletes, 8 disciplines, 7 countries and 100% Europe.
The Old World is the first dedicated European bike movie that is bridging the gap between mountain bike and BMX riding but also between action sport movies and feature films. 4 years in the making, The Old World touches down on unique European locations from the remote fjords of Norway, majestic Scottish highlands, rough alpine singletrack and the magical metropolis of Paris – the team travelled for two years to portrait the rich continental riding landscape and its biking stars.
In a never before seen way The Old World portrays the various disciplines biking has to offer while telling the story of imagination and passion. Something every rider, sports fan and dreamer can relate to. Did you ever ride the contours of the passing landscapes with your hand on the passenger seat? Did you ever stare into a beautiful picture and it becomes alive in your mind? It’s this kind of imagination we all share.
In an artistic side story unusual for sports movies we follow newcomer Bless Amada on a mindtrip through a fantastic world of imagination that opens up to the wildest dreams of biking. Shot in a dedicated way each segment portrays a certain discipline, mindset and landscape to show Europe’s diverse riding culture and landscapes. The essence of European biking.
