Belgian rider Kenny Belaey is an international competitor with an enormous trophy cabinet who has won no less than three World Championships and six World Cups this decade. This year the Monty / Redbull rider came second in the World Championship in Australia before going on to win the World Cup in New Zealand. He is the UCI’s No. 1 seed. Kenny Belaey is also a rider who works hard to give trials a more professional image and a bigger audience, both in the media and at the many events throughout the year. We informed you in March of an ambitious project that Kenny was undertaking with the Extreme Sports Channel, a massive and unprecedented project for the sport: in its tenth year the channel has produced a comprehensive documentary on trials and on Kenny.

“Kenny Belaey’s Big Time” is a three-part documentary produced and presented by Kenny himself that plunges us into the heart of the discipline! Extreme followed Kenny throughout the 2009 season (almost seven months of filming) to film his competitions, training and trips around the world (Spain, England – where he went to London for the biggest street ride in the world – and the USA), where he met some legends of the sport, including Hans “No Way” Rey, Ot Pi, Dave Mirra, Jeff Lenosky, Aaron Chase and Danny Macaskill! This allowed Kenny to look back at the history and fabulous progression of the sport. The documentary also shows that trials is an important skill at the basis of many other MTB disciplines and that it has become a truly professional sport. Three 25 minute episodes were produced and shown in 55 countries to 23 million viewers – a big first for the trials world! The first episode went out on the 6th of December in the UK and will be shown in France from the 2nd t the 6th of January at 07.30, 14.30 and 17.30.

The first looks back over the history of trials and introduces us to some of the legends of the sport (Kenny Belaey’s Big Time (1/3)). The second episode takes us to England, the heart of the world’s street trials scene, before heading over to the States where Kenny meets Hans Rey and some other big names from the US scene (Kenny Belaey’s Big Time (2/3)). Now here’s the third episode of this exceptional documentary, shown in the UK on the 20th of December and which UK trials rider Andy Green very kindly uploaded for everyone to watch! This time the focus is on Elite competition and Kenny himself. Kenny gives us his thought on the current state of the sport, which has become a demanding sport of the highest level. We follow his 2009 season from street training (he throws down some incredible tricks with impressive ease) to a chat with his coach, Paul « VDB » Vandenbosch, who insists upon the importance of physical and mental preparation in trials at this level, to the highlights of the comp circuit: reclaiming the world record for the most 180 hops in a minute, his home win at the fourth round of the World Cup in Knokke-Heist). The last eight minutes of the episode, in which we see Kenny pit himself against the other two members of the ‘Big Three’ (Gilles Coustellier & Vincent Hermance), are definitely the icing on the cake, with plenty of comp footage and interviews with Gilles and Hermance!
