Travis Pastrana delivers whips, flips, and none-stop hits...
The biggest, newest, and garliest competition in action sports exploded into life on Saturday night. The Nitro World Games, the latest brainchild of Travis Pastrana and the Nitro Circus crew saw records smashed, never-been-done tricks stomped, and minds completely blown.
Million of viewers around the globe, streamed the inaugural Nitro World Games, with Mpora hosting it’s very own live stream, while 25,000 hyped fans watched the action unfurl from within the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Over four hours of non-stop action spots mayhem saw BMX, skateboarding, FMX, inline, and scoot taken to new heights, as some of the biggest names in their respected sports hit the specially modified Gigant-a-ramp and Nitro World Games course in a bid to be crowned the number one in their field.
The beauty of the Nitro World Games is that the qualification for the event is completely open, meaning anybody good enough to be there could be. Nobody can blame politics on not bagging a gong at the Nitro World Games.
There were an incredible 32 world first tricks landed on the night, but headlines have been shared between two men. Greg Duffy stole the show on the FMX side of things, by landing an incredible double front flip, which bagged him the FMX Best Trick Medal.
Meanwhile, Mpora favourite Ryan Williams – a man who Travis Pastrana himself once called the most talented rider at Nitro Circus – stomped a Nothing Bikeflip and a 1080 Frontflip to not only win BMX Best trick, but also the affection of a lady in the audience.
