If you were to ask WRC driver Jari-Matti Latvala if he would have rather won Rally Argentina 2016 than wreck spectacularly out of the lead in the closing stages, he would take the former 10 times out of 10. If I were him, I would feel the same way. But while wins get forgotten (quick, tell me who won the Rally Monte Carlo last year), wrecks like this are immortalized for years to come. So chin up, Jari-Matti, and enjoy the viral ride while it lasts.
It's been over 6 weeks since the WRC race, so needless to say, we are rearing and ready to go. In that spirit, check out the trailer for WRC Rally Argentina 2016, which mercifully ends our wait for more rally today.
Inspired by 8 singular pieces of art created over the course of 8 days by infamous street artist, Felipe Pantone, it probably goes without saying that Hoonigan drivers Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud's 2017 GRC liveries are the highest-concept paint schemes in racing history. Check them out and let us know what you think in the comments.
Looking to kick off your next ski-cation in style? Then take some tips from Takeshi Kimura, who threw some chains and rally lights on a F40 and pointed it straight up the damn mountain. If you've seen a cooler Ferrari all year, you're probably lying.
Last week, our homey Richie Jackson dropped arguably his weirdest, wildest, and waxiest part yet, turning the skate world on its head in the process. In order to pay proper tribute to this skate-n-create masterclass, we decided to gif-ify his 5 craziest stunts for snackable consumption. Needless to say, if skateboarding had rules, Richie would have broken them all.
Finals night is a go, people! Tune in to our live stream (beginning below at 7:15pm EST), straight from the Suzuka Twin Circuit in Japan, to see how all the action from the year's first Formula Drift event shakes out. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.
Yesterday, Ken Block—after months of coy hints and outright secrecy—announced Gymkhana EIGHT with the unveiling of its star, a wild, 650-hp Ford Fiesta ST RX43 slathered in reflective paint and mounted on a mean set of Toyo rubber. Besides a premier date and time (Monday February 29th at 9pm PST), details remain scant, however, so we got to thinking: Of all the possible Gymkhana destinations on this giant, spinning orb of pavement, what would be the coolest, craziest, and, OK, probably most unrealistic? What follows are our 5 favorite (im)possibilities. Pull that E-brake and check them out.
El Niño has already been extremely giving (or violent, depending upon how you look at it) to the Pacific coastlines this winter. But over the weekend a massive swell lit up every big wave spot from Hawaii to California to Mexico and everywhere in between.
With that, Jaws lit up, the Todos Santos Big Wave Challenge went down, and Waimea Bay was completely shut down. Get caught up on one of the most adrenaline-packed weekends in big wave surfing to ever go down.
There are few people on this earth more responsible for the transcendence of music, art, film, fashion, and gender roles to all walks of life than David Bowie. The world lost the Starman on January 10, 2016 to a bout of cancer but his legacy will most certainly live on longer than all of us.
More specifically, his music has fueled generations of skaters, snowboarders, and surfers alike. Always reinventing and never satisfied with what he had just done, his was a life of innovation that continually challenged the status quo.
Skate, snow, and surf parts with David Bowie songs are some of the most memorable we've encountered. Bowie tracks have been sparingly used through these genres of videos, as if you're using a Bowie song it better be a f—king part that's going to push for part of the year.
With that said, here are the 7 best parts of our time that paired their months of stacked clips with the everlasting sounds Bowie. Goodnight and rest in peace, Starman.
Josh Sheehan, and to be honest, it wasn't even close. What we are talking about here is an ozone-scraping triple (yes, TRIPLE) backflip on a 200-plus-pound motorcycle. Stomped. If you saw a single trick gnarlier than this in 2015, then you're probably lying.
