Ken Block, pro rally driver and co-founder of DC shoes, has tried his hand at several actions sports including snowboarding, skateboarding and motocross. The dude is an absolute adrenaline junkie. Since selling his stake in DC Shoes, he’s directed his efforts into Gymkhana–a type of motorsport that aims at achieving the fastest time on a obstacle-ridden course, requiring expert use of reversals, 180 degree spins, 360 degree spins, parking boxes, and figure 8s.
Block’s Gymkhana 2 video was 2009’s fourth most viewed viral video, amassing more than 47,000,000 YouTube views and birthing a series of incredible stunt videos that test the limits of competitive driving.
His latest masterpiece required an entire stretch of interstate in Dubai to be closed down for stunts that make the Fast and Furious franchise look like a 16-year-old’s driving test.

Please remember to use you directionals, bros.
