The new year is off to a rough start for the motorsports community who must mourn the loss of action sports megastar Ken Block.
Davey Coombs President of MX Sports Pro Racing wrote, “Everything that Ken Block did in his life was genuine, thoughtful, smart and sincere. His passion for action sports of all kinds ran deep, only surpassed by the love and passion he had for his family. His many successes were well-earned, his many accomplishments well-deserved. He was a true fan of supercross and motocross–Ken once spent a summer following the AMA Pro Motocross tour just so he could ride all of the tracks on amateur day. Every rider in the paddock probably looked up to him as much as he looked up to them. He was as much an icon as a role model, and just a truly great human being.Our hearts go out to his wife Lucy and his children Lia, Kira and Mika.”
