The fifth installment of the DC Shoes/Ken Block Gymkhana series went live this morning and it is a great watch. The last one was kind of cheesy in our eyes but Block brought the high heat for this one. This film had some serious budget as there are helicopter shots, all kinds of cool camera work and it was shot on the streets of San Franscisco. Hell, they closed down a damned bridge and what seems to be half the roads in the city, both downtown and otherwise to make it.
You’ll see Block’s amazing car control on full display here as he jumps, slides, and skids his way around one of California’s most beautiful metro areas. There’s not a lot more to say on this other than, watch it! Oh, pay attention to the part that Travis Pastrana plays in it. The scene that he’s involved with is freaking amazing both on the levels of car control and all out danger. In fact, we’d hazard to guess that this was the most dangerous installment that Block has filmed yet. There are some high speed maneuvers in this one that could have resulted in serious carnage!
Press play and watch Ken Block light up the tires and the screen in Gymkhana 5!
