Published October 3, 2018

LOS ANGELES (BRAIN) — The documentary featuring mountain biker Rebecca Rusch won an Emmy award Sunday for Outstanding Graphic Design and Art Direction in a documentary.

The 2017 film follows Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal was to reach the crash site and final resting place of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos some 40 years earlier.
