Jed Mildon: Starting a ‘Revolution’ | Chase for the World-First BMX Quad Backflip

New Zealand’s Jed Mildon is made to land world-first tricks, with eight under his belt since he exploded onto the pro scene. How many BMXers have broken out and gone pro by being the first to land a long-sought-after trick? Mildon did just that in 2011, when a video of him sticking the first-ever BMX triple backflip went viral, and it’s been all crazy tricks and world firsts since. On July 12 on NBC, you can watch Mildon attempt to land the world-first quadruple backflip.

He won’t be the only one attempting it, though, as fellow Nitro athlete James Foster also has his eyes on the prize. The two friends and colleagues have total respect for each other, as they should, because they share more than just a spot on the Nitro Crew and a love of BMX: They’re the only two athletes in the world to ever land the BMX triple backflip.

Mildon grew up in Taupo, New Zealand, with what he describes as a good group of mates who coined his nickname, “Warrior,” and brought him into the world of action sports and freestyling. He quickly found that BMX was what truly sparked his creativity. While paying the bills as a welder, he spent his free time honing his skills to try the first-ever triple backflip and managed to convince a local McDonald’s to sponsor his attempt. He stuck it and never looked back.

Jed Mildon

His dedication has obviously paid off. In the four years since landing the triple, he’s racked up a dedicated fanbase and an impressive roster of world-first tricks, like this double backflip tailwhip:

For Nitro athletes, the quest to land a world first goes beyond the recognition, beyond the moment. As Mildon says, the feeling of walking new ground is something that sticks with you long after the deed is done.

Most of the time, the journey to a world first is a personal one, where your main competitor is yourself, your own psychological and physical limitations. But for the BMX quad flip, Mildon will be facing off against a worthy rival in Foster, which is certain to bring out the Maori warrior spirit that earned him his nickname. Will that be enough to cement him a place in the history books once again? Tune in to NBC’s Revolution Day: The Chase for the Biggest Trick in Action Sports History on July 12 to find out!

The 90-minute special premieres Sunday, July 12, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. ET, 3:30 p.m. CT, and 1:30 p.m. PT on NBC.

Nitro Circus Is Now Partnering With NBC

NBC SPORTS VENTURES ANNOUNCES STRATEGIC ALLIANCE WITH NITRO CIRCUS

Multi-Year Partnership to Present Nitro Circus Programming on NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra

90-Minute Special Nitro Circus: Revolution Day to Air July 12 on NBC

Nitro Circus: Revolution Day to Feature World’s First Attempt to Land a Quadruple Backflip on a BMX Bike

Eight-Episode Reality Series Nitro Circus Crazy Train to Debut Thursday, October 15 at 9 p.m. ET on NBCSN

STAMFORD, Conn. – NBC Sports Ventures, a division of NBC Sports Group, and Nitro Circus, today announced a multi-year strategic alliance that will feature Nitro Circus programming to air across NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra. In 2015, the content partnership will include the launch of a new series on NBCSN, and two 90-minute specials that will air on NBC and NBCSN. In addition, all Nitro Circus programming will be streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra.

NBC Sports Group’s coverage will begin on July 12, when NBC will broadcast Nitro Circus: Revolution Day, a 90-minute special chronicling the ongoing competition between BMX superstars Jed Mildon and James Foster as they attempt to make action sports history by landing the world’s first quadruple backflip. Following Revolution Day, On September 12, NBCSN will broadcast Nitro Circus: The Biggest Trick Ever In Action Sports, a 90-minute special detailing freestyle motocross athlete Josh Sheehan’s recent attempt to complete the first ever triple backflip on a motorbike.

On Thursday, October 15 at 9 p.m. ET, NBCSN will debut Nitro Circus Crazy Train, an eight-part non-scripted reality series that will air on Thursday nights. Each one-hour episode of Crazy Train will feature a regular cast of athletes and signature stars from the Nitro Circus stadium tour, and give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the daily lives and journeys of the Nitro Circus team. Crazy Train cast members include action sports icon Travis Pastrana, along with freestyle motocross star Adam Jones, groundbreaking female FMX and BMX athlete Jolene Van Vugt, and BMX champion Chad Kagy.

“We are excited to launch this partnership with Nitro Circus,” said Rob Simmelkjaer, Senior Vice President, NBC Sports Ventures. “The skill of the athletes and the excitement of their stadium shows is remarkable. Revolution Day, Crazy Train and our other Nitro Circus programming will give viewers an exclusive look into the lives of these super star athletes.”

“We are thrilled to team with such an iconic company as NBC Sports Group. This is a fantastic home for Nitro Circus as we open this exciting new chapter for our brand,” said Michael Porra, Nitro Circus CEO and Creative Director. “NBC Sports’ impact on sports television is undeniable, and this partnership offers other fantastic opportunities that will introduce us to an even wider audience. This is a game-changer for us, as well for action sports.”

Since 2010, nearly two million people have attended Nitro Circus stadium shows and performances. In 2015, Nitro Circus will hold 37 shows in North America and nearly 100 shows across the globe. Nitro Circus tours annually feature more than 40 different athletes.

The Chase for the Biggest Trick in Action Sports History

Only two BMX riders in the world have ever landed a triple backflip: Nitro athletes Jed Mildon and James Foster. Mildon was the first, but Foster has made the trick a consistent part of his performance arsenal. After initially setting the bar, Mildon swore off ever attempting another triple. Instead, he’s going straight for four. And so is Foster. The world-first BMX quadruple backflip is coming to a TV near you. (And, for fans outside of the U.S., stay tuned on our Facebook and other social media channels on July 12 to find out how you can be part of Revolution Day.)

Quad Backflip Setup at Pastranaland

Back in April, a lucky few gathered at Travis Pastrana’s house on a sunny Tuesday morning to watch Josh Sheehan attempt the world-first triple backflip on a motorcycle. While everyone was looking at his ramp, those of us who were there (or watched the video closely) couldn’t help but notice a certain other ramp, right next to Sheeny’s. At Pastranaland, pretty much every path ends in a ramp, so a ramp by itself isn’t such a big deal. But this one was a little different:

Quad Ramp Setup at Pastranaland

This 20-footer is officially the biggest ramp ever hit by a BMX bike (several BMX bikes now, in fact). These photos don’t do it justice. In person, the thing is massive, and you get a true sense for what these athletes are risking when they hit it. When we first showed it to the world, speculation was rampant about its purpose, but we decided to keep it under wraps at the time.

The ramp, of course, is only part of the story. Foster and Mildon have come a long way in search of this goal, and the journey to get here is as important as the final moment itself. Both have what it takes, both deserve to be the first, but who will it be?

Less than two weeks from today, these men will simultaneously attempt to become the first-ever BMX athlete to land a quad backflip. And thanks to our new partnership with NBC, you’ll be able to watch the battle for this historic moment on NBC’s Revolution Day: The Chase for the Biggest Trick in Action Sports History on July 12.

Quad Backflip Setup at Pastranaland

This world first will truly be a worldwide event. Will it be the American James Foster, the most experienced at the triple? Or will it be New Zealand’s Jed Mildon, who stuck the triple first? Or both? Or neither? Tune in to find out!

The 90-minute special premieres Sunday, July 12, 2015 at 4:30 p.m. ET, 3:30 p.m. CT, and 1:30 p.m. PT on NBC.

For fans outside of the U.S., stay tuned on our Facebook page and other social media channels on July 12 to find out how you can be part of Revolution Day.

Sheeny Eyes an ESPY, Geneva Highlights, and Croatia Cliff Ramps | WildWeek

When you’re touring the world, you move beyond asking what time it is to mostly being like, “Where are we again?” (The answers lately have been Sweden, Croatia, Switzerland, France, and Spain.) Luckily, we save this space every Friday to recap the most awesome Nitro things from the last week or so, which at least helps us keep track of where we’ve been. And when we want to know where we’re going next, we just head over to the tour page. (And you should do too!)

Watch Highlights From Geneva, Our Best Show Yet
We’ve had such a great time in Europe, but our best show was Moto Mayhem in Switzerland. The huge, pumped-up crowd had everyone in the mood, and as you’ll see from this highlights edit, the riders took that energy and ran with it. (Watch it here)

Set Sail on a Pirate Ship Bound for Epic ‘Crazy Train’ Cliff Ramps
We’ve got behind-the-scenes shots from Crazy Train, this time in the absurdly beautiful Eastern European fantasy land of Croatia. Travis Pastrana and the crew commandeered a pirate ship and headed out to build BMX ramps on the edge of cliffs overlooking the ocean. (See it here)

Watch The AmBADASSador: FOSTER’S HAIR, TRAV’S HAT, AND SHEENY’S MUSCLES
Coby Toland is at it again, this time with a hard-hitting in-depth report on … well, the top of the Crew’s heads, mostly. James Foster defends his haircut, Travis Pastrana has a great hat story, and what happened to Josh Sheehan’s shirt?  (Watch it here)

Watch Tommy & Crum: THE GREAT HIKE FIGHT
In this week’s episode of Tommy & Crum, the guys sacrifice their comfort for an amazing shot, but on the way tensions boil over. Will Tommy see Crum as the indispensible partner that he is?

Huge Crowds & Crazy Crashes | Nitro in Switzerland

We’re having such an awesome time in Europe. Fresh off an amazing show in Vienna, Austria, the cast of our upcoming NBCSN show Crazy Train took a detour to film in Croatia, where we managed to combine pirate ships, huge ramps, and an octopus (click here for BTS photos). Then it was off to Switzerland, where Travis Pastrana and Erik Roner’s BASE jumping adventures have to be seen to be believed (and don’t worry, that’s coming soon). But first, some highlights …

Switzerland: known for chocolate and cheese and incredibly useful pocketknives. And now, at least for us, one of the best shows we’ve ever done. Moto Mayhem in Geneva drew an amazing crowd with more than 20,000 screaming fans, with the energy to match the sheer size of it.

Nitro Circus Moto Mayhem - Geneva 2015

Needless to say, we were stoked for the show and each and every rider brought it, as you’ll see in this great little highlights edit (above) that has the perfect mix of sticks and stacks. Before you check out the rest of these photos, head over to our tour page to see when we’ll be in a city near you (hint: soon!). Geneva has set the bar high, so we’ll be looking at you Nice, France and Madrid, Spain.

Pirate Ships & Sick Cliffs | Filming ‘Crazy Train’ in Croatia

After our live show in Vienna last week, we took off for Eastern Europe to continue filming our upcoming NBC Sports Network series Crazy Train. Game of Thrones isn’t the only intrigue-heavy TV series rolling out the cameras in Croatia. We took to Dubrovnik, Croatia like only the Nitro Crew could, renting a pirate ship and heading off in search of some sick cliffs where we built our own ramps and launched BMX bikes straight off into the ocean.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

Travis Pastrana was on hand, of course, as he is for most of our craziest ideas.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

No pirate ship we’ve ever heard of comes with a safety rail, but we figured it’s probably for the best with little Addy on board. Anyway, a safer boat ride sort of balances out the “ramping bikes off of cliffs” thing we were about to get into, right?

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

We made some new friends.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

And gave Gavin Godfrey a new hairstyle.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

It’s no wonder Game of Thrones chose to film here. Everything about the place is epic.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

But we took it upon ourselves to make it slightly more epic.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

All it takes is a pile of wood, some screws, and Ethen Roberts’ keen eye for kickers.

'Crazy Train' in Croatia - June 2015

Here’s the face of a man who can’t wait for the ramps to be done already.

Travis Pastrana rides the cooler

The AmBADASSador: ROADTRIPPING IN NEW ZEALAND WITH TRAVIS
There are too many amazing things in this week’s episode to list here, like Travis Pastrana riding a motorized ice cooler. So, instead of doing that, we’re just going to point out how, at 1:45 in this video, Travis is left hanging by a pre-teen. Now that’s badass. (Watch the full episode)

The boss gets slapped

Watch Pro Rollerblader Chris Haffey Get Back at His Boss
The American dream is about pulling yourself up by your bootstraps to achieve your idea of happiness. On this week’s Tommy & Crum, Haffey fulfills a different dream: the less life-changing but no less important dream of slapping your boss hard across the face without consequences. (Watch the full episode)

Watch Clinton Moore Dominate the X Fighters World Tour
Huge congrats to Clinton Moore on his second consecutive win at X Fighters! This round he bested a strong field in Athens, Greece. Tom Pagès took second. Back in March, Moore also won the Mexico City event, with Nitro riders Pagès and Levi Sherwood finishing second and third. Next, X Fighters heads to Madrid in July. Can Moore go three for three? (Watch and learn more here)

Watch The New High: Extreme Sports Featuring You-Know-Who
A new documentary, The New High: Extreme Sports, premiered last night on CNBC with an awesome segment on us! CNBC says: “If extreme sports has a hero, it’s Travis Pastrana, X-Games legend and now ringleader of the enormously popular arena show Nitro Circus.” Very cool. The whole documentary is worth watching if you’re an action sports fan at all, so if you missed it be sure to check your TV listings. It re-airs tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET, twice on Sunday, and more throughout the week on CNBC! (Watch a preview clip)

We just wrapped up in Vienna, and now we’re on our way to Geneva in Switzerland! To learn more about our adventures this summer, check out our last WildWeek and then come back next Friday.

Moto Mayhem in Budapest

It went down in Budapest on Sunday: The stadium was enormous, the fans were awesome, and the Crew was in rare form. And, we have the photos to prove it.

Nitro Circus Moto Mayhem - Budapest 2015

We got some great behind-the-scenes photos, as well as some clips of Bilko and Steve Mini with their aerial shenanigans. Definitely don’t miss Mini hitting a heelclicker-superman no handed lander …

IMG_0492

Watch Steve Mini and Bilko land these combo flips!

 

Thursday we hit Vienna, and then we’re bringing the Moto Mayhem to GenevaNice, and Madrid before we come back to the States this fall to close out the year strong. We’re totally pumped about these Moto Mayhem shows because we’re using our new, one-of-a-kind winch system for hurling non-motorized vehicles faster, higher, and further than we’ve ever been able to before. Picture a human slingshot, but a lot more dangerous. Or don’t picture it, just check out these photos.

Nitro Circus Moto Mayhem - Budapest 2015

Speaking of one-of-a-kind, have you seen what Matty and Emma McFerran have been up to lately? They’ve become the first-ever brother-sister tandem FMX performers, creating a bunch of crazy new tricks that require one bike and two riders. There’s not likely to be a second set of tandem riders quite like this … maybe ever. All that is to say, if you want to see this live, you can find out when the next show near you is happening and to snap up your tickets.

Nitro on TV, Kicked Off Tinder, and Ethen Beats the Blob | WildWeek

We know it’s sometimes hard to keep up with all our shenanigans, and it’s been a heck of a week over here. So every Friday we’re going to give you a rundown of all the highlights from the last seven days or so. Here’s our highlight reel from this last week:

World Record Stunt – Ethen vs. the Blob

Watch Ethen Roberts Battle the Blob for a World Record
Last year, Ethen Roberts attempted a frontflip world record off a floating air bag, which didn’t go exactly as he or his face planned. This week, he went for a second attempt, and we have the video. (Watch it here)

 

We’re Coming to You on NBC and NBCSN

We’ve come a long way from hawking DVDs out of a garage in Utah. We’re teaming up with NBC to bring you even more Nitro madness, including an all-new TV show called Crazy Train, premiering this fall on NBCSN, and epic TV specials on NBC primetime — the first 90-minute special airs July 12! (Read all about it here)

 

Tattoo Fail

The AmBADASSador: TINDER, TAYLOR SWIFT, AND TATTOO FAILS
On this week’s episode, Coby asks the hard-hitting questions: Which Nitro athlete has the most embarrassing tattoo? What’s up with Beaver Fleming’s Taylor Swift T-shirts? Did Wheelz really get kicked off Tinder? The answers may surprise you, but probably not. (Watch the full episode)

 

Tommy & Crum

Where Are Tommy & Crum Now?
On this week’s episode, Tommy & Crum test drive a Ferrari 458 and live out their wildest Fast & Furious dream on location in Abu Dhabi. In one of the wealthiest and most expensive cities in the world, they order up a luxury racecar like it’s takeout food. (Watch the full episode)

 

Watch Nitro Riders Represent at X Games Austin

Our riders showed up big at X Games Austin: Jarryd McNeil, Bilko, Levi Sherwood, Sheeny, and Tom Pagès all took home some hardware. A podium sweep for Nitro riders in the FMX quarterpipe competition ain’t too shabby, but more than a few of our athletes deserve a shoutout. (Read more and watch the videos)

 

We’re having an awesome time in Europe after performing in Finland and Denmark, filming Crazy Train in Sweden and then Ethen’s stunt in the south of France. We’re heading to Budapest and Vienna for our next shows, and we have a lot more shows planned in the U.S. and Canada this fall!

World Record Stunt – Ethen vs. the Blob

Back in September, Ethen Roberts was in New Zealand looking for an answer to that age-old question: “What kind of badass stunt can we do with two huge rugby players?”

Seriously, though, while we were on tour in Auckland, he decided to try to break the world record for consecutive frontflips off a floating air bag. It’s quite a sight to see when Ethen gets launched off the blob and out over the harbor by these two muscle piles (who were very nice blokes, by the way) jumping down off a crane. How could anything go wrong?

OK, well, I guess it did go pretty wrong when he hit the water so hard that he busted an eardrum and gave himself a bloody nose. The thing with Ethen, though, is when he sets his mind to a world first, it’s not a matter of if… just when.

Some would be happy, maybe even downright stoked, with four and a half frontflips off the blob, which technically beat the previous record of four. But if you know anything about the Nitro Crew, you know that’s not how this story is going to end.

Since his first attempt, he has made his peace with rugby players, blobs, cranes, and whatever godforsaken laws of physics can somehow turn liquid into concrete when you’re crashing headfirst into it. It was time for another attempt, and yesterday in Nice, France, he faced the blob again.


Count ‘em! He didn’t even need any rugby players to send him off. Well done, Ethen.

Ethen and the Nitro Crew are currently touring around Europe! Find out when they’ll be in a city near you.

Nitro Athletes Represent at X Games Austin

X Games Austin wrapped up over the weekend, and when the dust cleared, several familiar faces were left with a bit of extra hardware after a fierce competition. Huge congrats to all the medalists, and a special shoutout to the big finishers who we consider our co-workers.

Jarryd McNeil, left, Blake "Bilko" Williams, and Josh Sheehan in Nitro Circus shows.

Those familiar faces include Tom Pagès, Levi Sherwood, and Sheeny, who took the top three spots in the moto x quarterpipe competition, a podium sweep for past and present Nitro riders. Check out video of their winning runs here: gold, silver, bronze.

Other big winners include Jarryd McNeil, who earned himself a gold medal for best whip. Bilko brought home a silver for speed and style, an event Adam Jones just barely missed the podium in. James Foster’s fraction-of-a-point fourth-place finish was another Nitro near miss in what was an epic BMX big air competition. Better make some room on the mantel, boys! Well done.

Nitro Circus Live’s latest creation takes things to a whole new level, as the best athletes in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and more unite for a spectacular all-new production. Starring 17-time X Games medalist Travis Pastrana, the tour will feature unbelievable new tricks, record-breaking feats, insane stunts and the craziest contraptions ever, plus a whole new repertoire of daredevil fun.

“We’ve had a blast touring the world this year and can’t wait to bring this all-new tour to Europe,” says Pastrana. “With each show everyone is pushing one another to go faster and jump farther than the night before. By 2016 it’s going to be unbelievable! Plus, this stage set is so over the top. Fans will be blown away.”

Pastrana will lead an elite team of athletes showcasing a star-studded FMX line up that includes the world’s first triple backflipper and reigning X Fighters champion Josh Sheehan, Australian X Games gold medalists Blake “Bilko” Williams and Cam Sinclair plus American superstar Adam Jones. On the BMX side, show attendees can expect to experience a cavalcade of never before seen madness led by James Foster, the only person currently performing the BMX triple backflip, plus a host of other big names including “The Warrior” Jed Mildon, X Games medalist Andy Buckworth, and plenty more. Fans can also look forward to seeing Jolene Van Vugt, the most daring woman in action sports, and groundbreaking wheelchair motocross (WCMX) star Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham.*

With this star-studded lineup, combined with a host of outrageous new contraptions launched from the jacked-up, bigger than ever Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp, this is truly a visual experience never seen before.

To top it all off, for its latest event Nitro is going really retro, with the entire performance choreographed and styled as a 1920’s three-ring circus featuring elephants, bears, clowns, trapeze artists, flame throwers, lion tamers and much more. Painstakingly developed over the past five years, this stunning new set and Nitro-composed soundtrack will transport you into the past, to an eerily haunting, abandoned, derelict Big Top. With mind-blowing new lighting and an explosive pyrotechnic display, the new theme provides the perfect backdrop for the most spectacular show in Nitro’s history. “Believe us when we say, you have never seen a circus like this before,” says Pastrana.

Fans looking for the ultimate Nitro Circus experience will want to get their hands on the all-new Nitro Club VIP package. These exclusive passes include the best seats in the house, as well as a chance to get up close and personal with Travis Pastrana and the stars of Nitro Circus during an exclusive Q & A session. Nitro Club pass holders will also receive a souvenir lanyard and electronically signed A2 Nitro poster, as well as a chance to win cool Nitro swag.

The world’s biggest live action sports show will visit 11 first-time markets such as Chicago, Denver and Washington D.C. as well as six Canadian stops, making it the most extensive run that Nitro Circus has ever undertaken.

Nitro Circus Live’s latest creation takes things to a whole new level, as the best athletes in freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX, skate and more will unite for a spectacular all-new production. Starring 17-time X Games medalist Travis Pastrana, the tour will feature unbelievable new tricks, record-breaking feats, insane stunts and the craziest contraptions ever, plus a whole new repertoire of daredevil fun.

Pastrana will lead an elite team of athletes** including the World’s First triple backflipper and reigning X Fighters champion Josh Sheehan, along with a star-studded FMX line up that includes X Games Gold medalists Australians Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams & Cam Sinclair and American Adam Jones.

On the BMX side, you can expect to see a cavalcade of never before seen madness, led by one of the most decorated action sports athletes of all time, Chad Kagy, along with the only man performing the BMX triple backflip, James Foster and a host of other names including ‘The Warrior’ Jed Mildon, X Games medalist Andy Buckworth, and plenty more.

Jolene Van Vugt, the first female ever to backflip a motorbike, will go for another groundbreaking World’s First as she attempts to land the first ever BMX double backflip by a woman. Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham will show what defying limits is all about by hitting Nitro’s infamous fifty-foot Giganta Ramp on his wheelchair. In a breathtaking display of strength and skill, three-time X Games Gold medalist Daniel Bodin will backflip a 400lb snowmobile ramp to ramp. The show will also feature quad bikes, minibikes and other motorized monstrosities. In all, there will be more than ten World firsts, never seen in the USA before.

When you combine that with a host of outrageous new contraptions launched from the jacked-up, bigger than ever Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp, you truly have a visual experience the likes of which has never been seen before.

And to top it all off, for its latest event, Nitro is going really retro, with the entire performance choreographed and styled as a 1920’s three-ring circus featuring Elephants, Bears, clowns, trapeze artists, flame throwers, lion tamers and much more. Painstakingly developed over the past five years, the stunning new set and the Nitro-composed soundtrack will transport you into the past, to an eerily haunting, abandoned, derelict Big Top. With mind-blowing new lighting and an explosive pyrotechnic display, the new theming provides the perfect backdrop for the most spectacular show in Nitro’s history. Believe us when we say, you have never seen a Circus like this before.

“We can’t wait to bring this all new tour to North America. The stage set is over the top and will definitely pump up the crowd,” says Pastrana. “That energy fuels us to push ourselves to the limit and put on an amazing show. You never know what could happen.”

Fans looking for the ultimate Nitro Circus experience will want to get their hands on the all-new Nitro Club VIP package.

Meet the AmBADASSador (and Ask Him Anything)

Today, we’re hosting a Q&A in our new Nitro Circus app with none other than the AmBADASSador himself, Coby Toland. Want to know what it’s like to tour with the Nitro crew? Or, what it’s like behind the scenes? He knows, and he’s going to be answering your questions TODAY at 5:00pm EDT (UTC-4).

For those of you who haven’t heard of this newest member of our crew… A little while back, we teamed up with DreamJobbing to find an Official Tour Reporter for the New Zealand leg of our 2015 global tour. Nearly 200 insanely awesome fans sent in their applications, but there could only be one winner — and (spoiler alert!) it actually wasn’t this guy.
 
 
Not that you’d know it by looking at him.
 
Meet Coby Toland, the new Nitro Circus AmBADASSador. The thing is: we loved his application so much that we decided to make him our “Ambassador of Badass” instead. We couldn’t resist teaming him up with our DreamJob winner, Christian Gallen, to see what kind of trouble they could get into together in New Zealand.
 
(That’s Josh Sheehan, by the way, who just landed the first ever triple backflip on a motorcycle.)
 
You’ll remember how Christian took you on tour through his home country, documenting all the action both during and after the shows in New Zealand. Well, we asked Coby to give you a behind-the-scenes look at all things BADASS about Nitro Circus.
 

 
“Whether it’s a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road with these guys or if it’s interview questions that are maybe putting them on the spot a little bit — if it’s badass, then I’m gonna bring it to you.”
 
In his new series, you’ll meet the guys and see what it’s really like to go out on the road with the Nitro Circus crew.
 
Ambadassador-1
And maybe you can tell us why they just ended up calling him “Red Beard”.

Moto Mayhem 2015

Nitro Circus Live, the action sports spectacle that is a global phenomenon, will bring an all-new high-octane show: Nitro Circus – Moto Mayhem to European stadiums for the very first time in 2015.

Headlined by 17-time X Games medalist Travis Pastrana, Nitro Circus – Moto Mayhem will feature over thirty of the world’s greatest extreme sports stars riding FMX, BMX and every conceivable action sports contraption. Starting May 29th in Helsinki, Finland, the tour will hit ten cities across Europe, all but one that Nitro has never visited before, before wrapping up in Madrid on June 26th.

The incredible lineup of freestyle motocross riders will include Pastrana, plus double backflip master and current X-Fighters champion Josh Sheehan, plus X-Games gold medalists Adam Jones, Blake “Bilko” Williams, Cam Sinclair and many more. The show will also include snowmobiles, quad bikes, tandem FMX, minibike madness and other motorized monstrosities. If it has an engine, it must fly.

BMX fans have not been forgotten, since Nitro engineers have spent years developing a proprietary double winch system that will hurl riders like Nitro stars Dusty Wygle and Ethen & Gavin Godfrey into the air higher, farther and faster than ever before. This technology will also help double sidehacks and a host of crazy contraptions such as wheeled water coolers, bathtubs and lazyboy recliners achieve liftoff. Fans can expect more outrageous shenanigans from the stars of the original Nitro Circus series as well.

To add to the excitement, several Nitro athletes will attempt World’s firsts and unbelievable new stunts during the tour. Jolene Van Vugt will go for a world record distance jump on a motorized version of her signature Barbie car. FMX star Matty McFerran and his sister Emma will be the only duo on the planet performing tandem freestyle motocross, on the same bike, and Ethen Godfrey-Roberts will attempt the World’s first double backflip on a minibike.

“We are so stoked to bring this brand new show across the Atlantic,” says Pastrana. “Our production guys really upped their game here. With all of the bikes, quads and cars it’s going to be massive. And I’ve always loved touring Europe – the fans are always insane, so we can’t wait to get there.”

“2014 was a landmark year for us, touring America for the first time and getting a huge response” said Managing Director/CEO of Nitro Circus Michael Porra. “2015 looks even bigger with our brand new European tour a major highlight, and close to 80 shows across the globe scheduled in for the next calendar year.” Porra added, “We’re always looking to give action sports fans something they’ve never seen before, and with Nitro Circus – Moto Mayhem, prepare to be blown away.”

Fans looking for the ultimate Nitro Circus experience will want to get their hands on the Nitro Club pass. These exclusive passes include the absolute best seats in the house, access to show rehearsal with a behind-the-scenes look at rider practice and a Q&A with Nitro Circus stars. Nitro Club pass holders will also receive a souvenir lanyard and electronically signed A2 Nitro poster, as well as a chance to win cool Nitro swag.

Nitro Circus always pushes the envelope, raising the bar with daring, record-breaking tricks and heart-stopping stunts, but Moto Mayhem takes it to another level. Fasten your seat belt.

Jarryd McNeil and Beau Bamburg Take 1 & 2 in Best Whip

By: Chris Elliott

It has been a long time coming for Nitro Circus rider Jarryd McNeil, but the rider from Australia finally won a major “Best Whip” event. McNeil beat out a dozen of the sports best (including five X Games Best Whip gold medalists) this past weekend in Las Vegas to secure the Dirt Shark Biggest Whip Contest win as part of the fourth annual Monster Energy Cup.

“I finally won,” said McNeil. “It takes a lot of practice to nail down the biggest whip, and I was glad that I was able to do it in front of all of these loyal fans tonight.”

Like last year, McNeil was one of nine riders competing in the parking lot of the Sam Boyd Stadium during the day just for a chance to ride in the finals. Not only did Jarryd make it into the night show, he did so qualifying in second behind fellow Nitro Circus rider, Beau Bamburg.

NC_article_BL1T3826_resizeGoing into the night show qualified 1-2, Bamburg and McNeil took their talents from the ramp set up in the parking lot to a dirt-to-dirt Supercross triple that was part of the actual race track. Once the finals got underway LIVE on Fox Sports 2, Bamburg and McNeil proceeded to put on a whip clinic.

McNeil took the win with a 91.7. Beau Bamberg turned in a 89.3 for second place and Edgar Torronteras finished third with a 84.7.

You can catch Jarryd McNeil and Beau Bamburg LIVE on the 2015 Nitro Circus Live tour starting this coming January. Sign up HERE for all tour announcements including dates, riders, and giveaways.

Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana today announced Nitro Circus Live is making its return to North America, kicking off in the U.S. beginning May 8 in Jacksonville, Florida. Nitro Circus Live, the action sports spectacle that is a worldwide phenomenon, features more than 40 of the world’s best action sports athletes performing daring and record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding. The tour features hilarious and heart-stopping stunts unique to Nitro Circus using contraptions such as water coolers, rocking horses, a lazyboy couch and more. Pastrana, a 10-time X Games gold medalist in freestyle motocross and one of extreme sport’s biggest names, is bringing back the stars of Nitro Circus’ hit MTV show and Nitro Circus 3D film. The team helped sell out city after city on its first U.S. tour earlier this year.

“We are so stoked to bring the biggest, most daring action sports production ever staged back home where Nitro Circus all started years ago,” says Pastrana. “Our insane group of athletes perform stunts that you literally cannot see anywhere else on the planet. We’re constantly pushing each other to break records and do things that people previously thought was physically impossible. We had an epic time in the US earlier this year, and we were pumped on just how many people came out to see us. Now we’re ready to show a whole bunch of new cities what we’re all about.”

Originally a small DVD series filmed in Pastrana’s Maryland backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show with more than 46 million U.S. viewers and broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The next step was Nitro Circus Live, which has captured the imagination of fans worldwide with a string of sell-out shows and record-breaking crowds across Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Africa.

Fans can expect spectacular, fully choreographed huge motocross stunts and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions – trikes, snow skis, a bath tub on wheels, tandem bikes, razor scooters, shopping carts, and even a Barbie car, all launched with precision and skill off the one of a kind 50-foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp. The ridiculous ‘Nitro Bomb’ is a favorite across the globe, with up to 20 riders mid-air and upside-down at the same time.

“We are building on the huge global success of Nitro Circus and can’t wait to return to North America in 2015,” said Managing Director of Nitro Circus Live Michael Porra. “We are breaking ticket sales records in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand and sold out arenas at nearly every stop on our first U.S. tour last year. It’s been a big year for Nitro Circus, and we can’t wait to bring the crew’s crazy antics to brand new cities across the country.”

Fans looking for even more excitement can purchase special Nitro Circus VIP Experience packages featuring an exclusive Travis Pastrana meet & greet opportunity, premium reserved seating with the best view of the action, tour merch not available anywhere else and much more. Don’t wait, however, as quantities are very limited: only 150 VIP Experience passes will be available for each show.

This summer in New Zealand, the greatest Action Sports star on the planet, Travis Pastrana, will unite with the world’s biggest names in FMX, BMX and Skate, including Kiwi riders Levi Sherwood, Nick Franklin and Jed Mildon, in a brand new Nitro Circus Live tour.

The tour marks the highly anticipated return of Pastrana, Nitro Circus founder and 17 times X Games medalist, to the sport that rocketed him to international superstardom, freestyle motocross. The upcoming tour will be the first time Pastrana has ridden in New Zealand since 2011.

Coupled with Pastrana’s return is an all-new show, which has been painstakingly developed over the past five years. In its latest inception, Nitro Circus Live is going ‘retro’, with the entire performance choreographed and styled as a 1920’s, Barnum & Bailey type circus. This tour boasts a multi-million dollar set with unbelievable features and a whole new repertoire of antics, contraptions, dare devil fun and of course the biggest tricks in action sports today.

“This new show is the biggest and most audacious action sports production ever staged,” said Nitro Circus Live CEO, Michael Porra. “It’s a truly exciting, adrenaline-charged, live show featuring an insane group of athletes who push each other to new extremes every single show.”

Attracting an ever-growing worldwide audience, Nitro Circus Live has been touring in the world’s most iconic venues, dazzling more than 1. 5 million fans since their last New Zealand stop in 2011.

“Nitro Circus Live sold out the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Madison Square Gardens in New York. We saw standing ovations there and on every stop during our European tour,” said Porra

The five-city arena tour will see the Nitro Circus crew performing at key venues across New Zealand.

Fans can expect the Kiwi trio of Levi Sherwood, world-first BMX triple back flipper Jed ‘The Warrior’ Mildon, and New Zealand’s original FMX star Nick Franklin star in front of a passionate home crowd.

Palmerston North’s Levi Sherwood, who is one of the top FMX stars in the world, returns to home turf for his first Nitro Circus New Zealand tour in four years.

In addition to the New Zealand natives, the ever-growing cast of action sports super-stars includes: Josh Sheehan, Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams, Adam Jones, Andy Buckworth, Ryan Williams and Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham

The audience will experience the world’s only ‘Hole in One’ – innovated in New Zealand on the last tour – where riders launch 50 feet into the air off the Gigant-A-Ramp and attempt to land with pinpoint accuracy inside an inflatable zorb ball.

The show also includes a host of mind-bending new tricks on a cavalcade of ridiculous, never-before-seen contraptions off the jacked-up Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp, which is 10-feet bigger, and will launch riders up to 20-feet further than ever before.

After a hugely successful 2013 trek, Nitro Circus Live is set to light up cities and towns across Australia once again next year.  Travis Pastrana and his team of the world’s best action sports athletes are gearing up for an eight-city Regional Tour.

Kicking off on Saturday, 21 February at GIO Stadium, Canberra, the 2015 Nitro Circus Live Regional Tour will travel across six states and Territories, culminating with an ANZAC weekend spectacular in Darwin on Friday, 24 April.

The tour will also feature shows in Wollongong, Hobart, Newcastle, Gold Coast, Mackay and an outdoor extravaganza in Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval.

Nitro Circus Live has captured the imagination of people wherever it travels and the Regional Tour will be no exception, with spectators given a rare opportunity to experience 17-time X Games medallist Travis Pastrana live in a show that sold out some of the biggest arenas in the world.

Pastrana is the biggest name in action sports and after successful stints in Super Cross, Rally and NASCAR, will return to his beloved Moto for next year’s Australian Regional Tour.

Joining Pastrana will be recently crowned X-Fighters champion and world number one freestyle motocross rider Josh Sheehan, who will attempt the most dangerous trick in action sports, his signature double backflip.

The 2015 Regional Tour will also feature an all-new ‘retro’ themed production, which has been choreographed and styled as a 1920’s, Barnum & Bailey Style circus.

Set on a stunning multi-million dollar set, the retro theme has provided a perfect backdrop for Pastrana, Sheehan and all the stars of Nitro Circus Live to showcase their aerial acrobatic skills to hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.

While FMX and BMX is sure to get pulses racing, a range of new contraptions including a bath tub, rocking horse and penny farthing set to test even the most brazen Nitro Circus Live performer!

The 2015 Regional Tour will see Nitro Circus Live reward its loyal fan bases in Newcastle, Gold Coast, Wollongong and Canberra with return engagements, while also expanding into three new territories – Hobart, Mackay and Darwin.

On Thursday, 2 April, Nitro Circus Live will break new ground when our athletes showcase their death-defying skills at the spiritual home of sport in South Australia, the Adelaide Oval.

“Nitro Circus Live is one of the hottest touring acts on the planet and I’m delighted to be able to give our fans across regional Australia an opportunity to experience a show that has captivated millions of people around the world.”  Nitro Circus CEO Michael Porra said.

“We have spared no expense in bringing this show to back to Australia.  Fans in Hobart, Mackay, Wollongong and all the regional centres will be able to watch the same athletes that have performed at the O2 Arena in London and Madison Square Garden in New York”

“Five years ago Nitro Circus Live began with a desire to give people in towns and cities across Australia a taste of extreme action sports and I’m thrilled to be able to take this all-new show back to our heartland areas.”

“Tickets are sure to sell out fast in some of our venues so I encourage fans to get in early for this once in a lifetime extreme sports extravaganza!” Mr Porra said.

Febreeze… It’s not for your own gear bag, but if Beaver Fleming is anywhere near your area, it’s evacuation without some sort of deodorizer!

Travis Pastrana Working On New Film

You’d think our athletes would want to relax in their downtime before they head out on our most massive global tour to date in 2015. Well it’s tough keeping these guys quiet for long and, frankly, they just get bored if they’re not jumping off something. Travis Pastrana has announced that he’s working on a new film called Action Figures. For all you lifelong enthusiasts, this film will be a callback to the DVDs of old which Trav and his friends grew up watching. Action Figures is like an extreme music video with members of the Nitro Circus family performing some of the most amazing tricks ever caught on tape. The ramps are bigger and the stakes are higher. It’s meant to push the limits of what you thought was possible.

Travis explains it in more detail here:

 

Keep checking back to NitroCircus.com for updates regarding the release of the film. Trav is actively working on it now but if you can’t wait until late 2014 to see it, you can follow his progress with our online exclusive web series where we get a glimpse at the types of tricks that are going down. Trust us, the most common phrases you’ll see with this film and web series are ‘world first’ and ‘world record’ – it’s that EPIC. For starters, check out the world’s first and second triple flip on a mountain bike:

 

 

We hope that wet your appetite. Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel to follow Trav’s progress as he works to bring you Action Figures.
