Video: Kenny Belaey rides on a slackline - more than 100 metres above the ground

Belgian trials rider pulled off stunt 2,700 metres up in French Alps

Multiple UCI trials world champion Kenny Belaey has pulled off what may be his most spectacular stunt yet - riding a slackline over a drop of more than 100 metres in the French Alps.

The 32-year-old Belgian, who is sponsored by Red Bull, spent a year planning the stunt and six months in training for the ride at La Plagne.

As you can see in the video, both bike and rider are tethered to the slackline for safety reasons - keep watching till the outtakes that accompany the closing credits and you'll see why.

Here's the 'Making of ... ' video to show exactly how it was done.
