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 Lisbon on June 28th.

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.

IF YOUR CITY ISN’T HERE, NEVER FEAR! WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING 25 MORE CITIES ACROSS THE US AND CANADA IN EARLY 2015. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE MAILING LIST TO GET THE NEWS AS SOON AS IT BREAKS!


Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana today announced Nitro Circus Live is making its return to North America, kicking off a 14 city U.S. tour beginning May 5 in Tampa, 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 14 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.

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.

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.

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.
