In 2005, DC Shoes co-founder Ken Block decided to pursue a childhood dream: becoming a professional rally driver. Upon completing his first year of racing, was awarded the title of “Rookie of the Year” by Rally America. From there, his trajectory upward was started.

Within a few years, he’d helped put rally racing on the map in America by competing in events at the X Games (his current X Games medal count is two silver and three bronze), as well as putting together highly successful campaigns in the Rally America Championship. In 2010, Block took his racing global with the creation of the Monster World Rally Team, competing in multiple rounds of the World Rally Championship in his Ford Fiesta. In 2013, Block’s team became the Hoonigan Racing Division and he continued to travel the world with his racing, adding the Global RallyCross Championship to his list series he races in

In addition to his success on rally stage roads, Block also created the YouTube viral video series known as Gymkhana. With 6 entries in the series and over 250 million views, Block’s is now equally well known for his viral videos as he is his racing.

For 2014, Block will be competing in select Rally America and World Rally Championship events, as well as the full Global RallyCross Championship, select rounds of the World Rallycross Championship. Additionally he’ll be performing Gymkhana demos in Japan as well as Madrid, Spain. Gymkhana SEVEN will drop in 2014 as well.
