Kenny Belaey answers the call of the wild in South Africa

It’s amazing what you can do on modern all-mountain bikes – they climb like XC bikes, descend like mini DH bikes… and can be hopped about like trials bikes, as Kenny Belaey proves in this video. The nine-time trials world champ swaps acres of standover and a crazy-long stem for 160mm of plush travel as he 360s his way around Cape Town and handplants a rhino. Okay, that last bit’s not true but he got a lot closer to them than we’d have fancied!
