Tommy's Dream Line
Thomas Genon needs no introduction having been at the forefront of the freeride and slopestyle scenes for many years. Since a breakout performance taking the Crankworx Joyride crown in 2012, Tommy has established himself as a reference in the world of MTB. What is less known though, is the Belgian’s love of creative content productions, be it photo or video
After weeks of work shaping a bespoke line, some huge filming days, and hours of post production- we are stoked to present “Renaissance”. A collaboration between Thomas, Canyon and Hector Cash.
A project like this allowed Tommy to let the ideas flow. No confines, no scoring. Just a top to bottom run filled only with features and tricks which Tommy wanted to explore- to push his limits and find new boundaries.
A custom line was crafted for this project with tons of earth being moved and shaped for days under the blistering Spanish sun.
Riders like Tommy are a rare breed, and despite starting off his career as a successful slopestyle athlete, every year Tommy shows us that he is so much more than that, hitting up events like Rampage and Fest Series events, it's clear to see Tommy's passion for freeride, and we were thrilled to support Tommy with this project, allowing him the opportunity to truly explore what was possible on the big bike.
As with everything in life, different disciplines come in and out of fashion, or simply evolve over time. And with the advent of more capable and agile bikes than ever before, re imagined trail features and riders constantly pushing themselves, are we now seeing the rebirth of freeride? We certainly hope so. This is Renaissance.
