Default Ken Block Gymkhana 4 Hollywood Megamercial

I just stumbled upon this video, had no idea who this guy was.

Searched his name & didn't find anything. D.C. shoes sponsors him.

As an avid part time rally racer to get to the snow, after a few seconds I was hooked, watched a couple more & found out that out that out of like 10 events he is doing this year across the globe, one of them is fairly close too me.

I think I might have to check it out.

You are into that scene and you have never heard of Ken Block before? That is very surprising.

Can't tell if trolling or not. Ken Block, as pointed out, is one of the founders of Droors Clothing (DC). He's been a long time snowboard enthusiast, too, owning the DC Mountain Lab at one point iirc.

Impressive Gymkhana videos are made from many different runs. Still very fun to watch.

Maybe I didn't word that properly, I don't follow rally racing @ all, & I have honestly never heard of him.

But I do love to drive like that any chance I get. My car just doesn't have 600+ horsepower. I think after about 400hp looks go right out the window. I would happily drive a car that had HOMO painted in big bright pink lettering, if it had 600hp.

Hemlock Valley Resort has a nasty road to get to the ski hill. Every year I see @ least 1 or 3 cars that have gone off the road.

I found a video of the road in time lapse, I think they should put on a rally race up to the top, Couple donuts then back to the bottom.

On a side note, I went out with the chick @ the 33 second mark last year. I got about 40-50 days of free freeriding using a blank managers seasons pass with a silhouette of a head on it.

She can also suck a golf ball through a garden hose, well probably not, but she doesn't have a gag reflex.
Free snowboarding & you can try & gag her to death, she's a keeper. Between Dec-April.
