TRAVIS PASTRANA BACK ON A DIRTBIKE FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2011

World’s greatest action sports star to perform freestyle motocross at Nitro Circus Live North American tour

Nitro Circus Live - European Winter Tour 2013
December 3, 2013–Millions of action sports lovers across North America will be excited to hear that Nitro Circus founder and the world’s greatest action sports star, Travis Pastrana, has made his highly anticipated return to freestyle motocross and the upcoming North American Nitro Circus Live Tour.
 “I am really pumped to be getting back on a dirtbike after three years,” said Pastrana. “I’ve had a rough time with injuries over the past few years and I have challenged myself in different disciplines, but freestyle motocross has always been my true passion. Nothing gets close to the energy generated by fans at a Nitro Circus Live event. I’m stoked to be riding and excited for the first-ever North American tour!”

 Travis took over the FMX scene at just 15, competing in the 1999 X Games and winning gold in FMX freestyle, sending a shockwave through the entire extreme sports community.  Pastrana continued his gold medal streak, taking home seven gold medals over the next 11 years. In 2006, Pastrana landed the impossible–the first-ever double backflip on a motorcycle, a stunt that still to this day is the most dangerous trick performed in action sports.

 After three years away from the sport due to a number of serious injuries and NASCAR commitments throughout 2012 and 2013, Pastrana will ride FMX at every stop in the upcoming inaugural 2014 North American Tour in January. This is the first time fans in the U.S. will have the opportunity to experience Pastrana riding his dirtbike since his attempt to perform a 720 at X Games LA in 2011.
