Kenny Belaey’s Balance is a film about someone with a deathwish


Kenny Balance

In the Redbull film Kenny Belaey’s Balance, we get to see Kenny Belaey ride a slackline over a 112m drop in the French Alps at an altitude of 2700m, becoming the first person in the World to ever do so successfully (without dying).

Belgian Red Bull athlete and nine time world trial bike champion Kenny Belaey recently grabbed a bronze medal at the UCI World Championship in Andorra – his 12th medal in 14 participations, which is most certainly an achievement to be proud of, but nothing close to what he pulled off in the French Alps.

After more than one year of preparation and six months of intensive training he succeeded in La Plagne, at an altitude of 2700 meters, to ride his bike over a 18m long slackline from one rock to another, over a 112m drop – proof of being perfectly in balance, not only resulting in spectacular footage, but also making a world first: Riding a highline on a bike.

Im a guy with a very particular view of life… im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I’ll be sure to let you know…
