I remember when the first gymkhana video came out and it wasn't really a big thing yet. I was sitting at my computer like Shocked.

Tons of balls to do this stuff. Would've been nice to be in San Francisco when they filmed this. I wonder what it sounded like on the street. That jump around 4 mins must've hurt like a mother too...

Awesome...! I actually like Ken Block... Whish he'd do better in the WRC though.... I honestly think Dave Mirra sgould try his hand at WRC... I think he's a better racer than Block... Block's got more Gymkhana talent for sure, but Mirra has the racing chops...

He was, but Mirra quit bMX long ago... He's been driving Rally America for 5 or so years..

Edit: Yep.... 5 years!!! http://www.subaru.com/enthusiasts/rally/drivers/dave-mirra/index.html

Correction... Mirra had the chops... He appears to have dropped off the map...

My hope is that more drivers from North America make it to WRC.... The Rally America series is gaining momentum... And the drivers are getting better!

I also hope that more manufacturers come back to WRC... Having only 3 (Citroen, Ford and Mini) is rather boring... I'd love to see Subaru vs Mitsubishi back, as well as Audi, Peugeot, Toyota and Fiat.... Dodge has a decent rally car now in the Dodge Dart (was in the X-Games) and I'd love to see Nissan and Hyundai give it a shot!
