RIP Ken Block
Ken Block, the rally driver and Hoonigan and DC Shoes co-founder who revolutionized action sports, has tragically died in a snowmobile accident near his home in Utah on Monday. He was 55.
Hoonigan Industries confirmed Block’s death in a statement posted on social media.
“It’s with deepest regrets that we can confirm that Ken Block passed away in a snowmobile accident today,” the statement read. “Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband. He will be incredibly missed.”
Block had created his own niche in rally and was a part of the wider motocross industry with his brand DC shoes, in what is a huge loss to the entire action sports world.
