FMX Riders Testing New Ramps for 2018 Tour

January 17, 2018

The Nitro Circus Crew is gearing up for a massive 2018. There are still a few weeks left before the touring season starts, and the FMX riders are taking the opportunity to log some hours on the new ramp setups that will be featured in the Next Level Tour of Australia. Travis Pastrana, Josh Sheehan, Adam Jones, Blake “Bilko” Williams, and Gregg Duffy headed to Lake Perris, California, to help break the ramps in. Ahead of the testing, Travis asked Sheeny how he was feeling. The veteran FMXer, the only rider to ever land a triple backflip on a motorcycle, wasn’t shy to admit the new ramps are intimidating, even for someone with his resume. “I’m a bit scared. It’s been a long time since I’ve hit anything close to that big. Look at the size of it. It’s just … it’s massive.” Adam, another FMX veteran who’s jumped it all, expressed a similar sentiment, using much more colorful language. Bottom line: As usual, Nitro Circus is pushing the envelope again. Check out some highlights:

I was constantly fighting this ramp to try not to over rotate it! πŸ“· @rickymelnik
