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.

Dig all day every day. A fresh line means graft. And lots of it.
Tons of dirt was shovelled packed and crafted in the preparation for Tommy Genon s Renaissance project.
A custom line was crafted for this project with tons of earth being moved and shaped for days under the blistering Spanish sun.

This one is ready to fly.

bigquotesFreeride is all about creativity, every rider has to show their own style, that’s what I love about it. Canyon bikes have always enabled me to express myself in the best way there is.Thomas Genon

One thing that Tommy Genon never ever lacks is style.
Not sure we'll ever get tired of seeing these.

Maximum attack at all times what else would you expect from such a perfectionist
Tommy's got some serious speed and bike handling to go with his bag of tricks

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.

From imagination to reality- a monster 270 transfer.

One of the biggest flairs we ve seen.
And one of the biggest flairs we’ve seen.

Tommy put some serious heat through his Canyon on this one.

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.

 Sometimes I wonder how good he would be on a WC DH track...just curious.. His speed and technique are really good, but what kind of difference would there be with, let's say, top 20 of the DH riders...

 He competed but didn't go so fast compared to the WC class at hardline. But if that were his only focus, it might be different. BTW I love his riding and that he crosses disciples.
