If you thought your last mountain bike ride was intense, prepare to feel at least slightly less badass: Kenny Belaey has you beat. In his most recent video with Red Bull, the Belgian mountain bike trials rider gets as close as anyone can to riding in thin air.

The idea behind trials riding is to make your bike do what bikes shouldn’t be able to do. This time, Belaey rode a slackline between two peaks in the French Alps, 112 meters (367 feet) above the ground. The resulting video, which includes a combination of GoPro helmet cam footage (terrifying) and shots from both sides of the peaks, may explain why his nickname is "The Magician."
