Ken Block x Ford Fiesta | Gymkhana 3 Launch Event

26 April 2010, 15.42 | Posted in cars | No comments »


Last week Ford invited us to San Francisco to view Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta Gymkhana 3 car and to test drive the Ford Fiesta. The event started with a 100 mile rally through wine country’s winding roads, during which we pushed the hell out of the Fiesta and it passed the test. Next was the reveal party sponsored by Ford, DC Shoes, and Monster, where Ken Block unveiled his new ride. The car looks official and even though we didn’t get to take a spin with Ken, our boy “Playboy Ricky Dorigo” aka Renee Renee shared his ride-along story and taught us about American steel. We have to say, we were a bit surprised when Block made the move from Suburu to Ford but Ford Fiesta definitely passes the rad test. Check out Brad Clarke’s pics of the event after the jump.

Ken Block’s reinvention as a rally car racer seems to be going in the right direction. Even though he didn’t place at the Rally Guanajuato Bicentenario Mexico, he also wasn’t dead last. Definitely not bad for the only American on the race, Ford has got to be stoked.

Rad Collector - Eddie Aikau Invitational Recap
The Quiksilver Eddie Aikau Invitational went down in Waimea, Hawaii on Tuesday, 25 years to the day from the first contest dedicated to the memory of one of Hawaii’s most fearless big-wave riders. The 50 foot waves that also showed up for the contest turned it into one of the gnarliest showdowns in recent history and resulted in an amazing 100 point score for both Greg Long and Ramon Navarro (shredding craze above). The 100 pointer put Long on top of Kelly Slater for the win and $55,000 while Navarro’s scored him 5th place and the Monster Drop Award. Check out full results and photos by Lyndsey Wong after the jump.

Rad Collector - Grenade Games 2009
Danny Kass’ Grenade Games 2009 are set to jump off in Whistler on April 20th aka 420. How appropriate. With poker, moguls, superpipe, big air, and skate mini-ramp all part of the festivities, this is not your average corporate snowboard event. Full schedule after the jump.
