Winning isn’t always enough though, sometimes you need to push the limits of what is physically possible. Kenny was ready for his next challenge; riding his trials bike along an 18m-long slackline, 112m above a gorge at an altitude of 2,700m.
“The moment my wheel touched the actual slackline for the very first time, after months of training and preparation and while being so self-confident, the only thing I could think of was, ‘This is impossible!’,” says Belaey.
“But with proper belief in my abilities, and sheer focus and determination, I managed to succeed. This was without a doubt the hardest challenge I’ve ever faced.” The hardest challenge so far, but probably not the last.
