Ok, it's no up! but what Ken Block does with a Fiesta is nothing short of an automotive ballet. Be sure to watch it in FULL SCREEN mode (HD if you got the bandwidth speed) with the speakers cranked up..!!

enjoy

I'm amazed they were even able to film it on (almost) deserted streets..!! And to think I've driven over that bridge (The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge), taken that very off ramp after the bridge and driven several of those streets in the Market District thousands of times myself (but not quite as fast)...

Awesome. He is so precise it's unreal. That's Travis Pastrana on the bike. I remember watching a video on Youtube a while back of Ken doing stuff like this through open doors in buildings, and jumping over massive ramps, etc. Then, Ricky Carmichael (The Greatest of All Time) jumps across his path while he's in the air (if that makes sense).

Yes, that was when Ken was featured on Top Gear.
