King of the Road is an institution in skateboarding. Started by Thrasher magazine in 2003, it's a demented, roving adventure that follows various skate teams across the country as they compete to accomplish a list of tasks, some of which carry great risk of bodily harm, and others that don't involve skateboarding at all (but still might carry great risk of bodily harm).

VICELAND has teamed up with Thrasher for the latest season, which will feature the Birdhouse, Chocolate, and Toy Machine teams hauling ass across America, throwing their bodies and whatever dignity they might have had into the wind for a chance to become the reigning King of the Road.

The Chocolate team is back to redeem itself after 2013's third place finish. This year, it's assembled an all-terrain squad, bringing in Raven Tershy, Stevie Perez, Elijah Berle, Justin Eldridge, and flow-rider Johnny Jones to try to unseat the Birdhouse army. Give the videos above and below a watch and keep an eye out for Toy Machine's introductory video, coming soon.

KING OF THE ROAD premieres Thursday, April 28 on VICELAND at 11 PM. Until then, watch the documentary following the last ten years of the competition.
