32 First ever Tricks at Nitro World Games

The inaugural Nitro World Games took place July 16 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. Travis Pastrana changed the game so many times it only made sense that his dream event would do the same thing. There were 32 never before done tricks at the Nitro Games this weekend, from the likes of winners Colton Walker,Levi Sherwood, Elliot Sloan, Gregg Duffy and with the new formats and judging system we may just see even more very soon. What will be especially interesting is how this will effect the more staple events such as X games and Dew Tour. Of course some of the events had mostly Nitro Circus athletes, who are the only people able to hit the giant ramps with specially modified landings, but it dont change the fact that the guys made history! Check out the winning runs below and I have also put the entire event stream up for you guys. Make some popcorn, gran a cold one and blow your mind!

On a side note, it is very interesting to see the outcry online over why they did not show the scooter and inline runs. While both are almost non-existent in SA, scooter has one of the biggest fan bases in the USA. On top of this it was a scooter athlete, Ryan Williams, who won the BMX best trick with a never before seen trick!

RIP Eric Roner – Nitro Circus Mourns

The action sports community lost one of it’s favorite sons this week when Nitro Circus star, Eric Roner, died on Monday after a skydiving accident in the US. Roner was a much beloved member of the crew and was a leading ski, bike and base jumping legend.

Travis Pastrana said today, “Erik was an amazing person who made everyone and everything around him better. His smile, laughter and personality will be missed by everyone at Nitro Circus. Most importantly he has a beautiful wife and amazing kids that will miss him dearly. He is gone… But will never be forgotten.”

The tragic accident occurred at the opening ceremony of the 4th Annual Squaw Valley Institute Celebrity Golf Classic in Squaw Valley, California.

Roner was the third member of a three-man parachute team to jump and, according to witnesses, was off the drop zone target on descent and hit a large tree. He was then transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Nitro Circus have set up a fund to assist his family and you can show your support here: http://www.road2recovery.com/cause-view/erik-roner-fallen-hero/

Travis Pastrana has lost his mind!

It has finally happened, Travis Pastrana has lost his mind! Not content with all the crazy firsts he already has to his name, now he wants the first FMX Front Flip and the first Triple Flip, which he needs the biggest kicker ever built…

Trav gets his friends (and a sheriff with a radar gun) out to test the biggest ramps ever conceived and constructed at Pastranaland. Featuring James Foster, Steve Mccann and Jolene Van Vugt.

First ever Triple Backflip on a Mountain Bike

So Travis Pastrana has a new film project coming, called Action Figures. In the build up to the film they will be dropping mad clips like this one of the Nitro Circus crew doing what they do best!

Gavin Godfrey and Ethen Roberts become the first and second riders to land triple flips on mountain bikes!
Welcome to the first episode in our Nitro Circus exclusive series leading up to the release of Travis Pastrana’s new film Action Figures! New episodes will air every other Friday.

Goodbye XGames LA

Thats right, the Xgames will be in Texas from 2014 after 11 years in Los Angeles. I thought that before I bring you all the highlights from an epic Xgames 2013, we would find out from the athletes what they thought of the event leaving LA and their favorite moments from over the last few years. I have to say I am very stoked I got to experience the event in LA, as it feels like the spiritual home of the event. But knowing the Texans, we can expect some bigger and grander things come 2014…
