#1: The First Nitro World Games | WildYear 2016
Topping our list of the best moments from 2016 is the first-ever Nitro World Games, an action sports competition years in the making, dreamed up and designed by legends. The inaugural event was more than the sum of its parts, which included dozens of competition World Firsts and a few tricks that would have been impossible not long ago. World-class athletes in FMX, BMX, skate, scooter, and inline competed in seven events designed to push the limits of what is possible, and the result was bigger and better than Mike Porra and Travis Pastrana ever imagined. The Nitro World Games takes the Nitro Circus spirit — testing the boundaries in a serious and safe way — and evolves it to fit a competition format that sees seven winners crowned in a single night of action. Travis and Mike were the driving force behind it all, and with the date set and tickets on sale for the 2017 Nitro World Games, it will surely be the place where action sport levels up for years to come.
