“BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR BECAUSE NITRO CIRCUS WILL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO IT.” — TRAVIS PASTRANA

Rides FMX

Action sports legend Travis Pastrana is Nitro’s fearless leader. He began riding a Honda one-speed at age 4, and despite being great at everything he tried, motocross is where he found his calling. He broke out in racing but quickly showed his versatility in freestyle. By 2005, he had accumulated a career total of five X Games gold medals, five golds from the Gravity Games, and additional wins at events including the Dew Tour and Red Bull X-Fighters. In 2006, Pastrana became the first person in the world to land a double backflip on a motorcycle during the Best Trick event at the X Games. In 2017, he won the six-round 2017 American Rally Association Championship and began work on a sequel to Action Figures, his directorial debut.

Rides BMX, Scooter

Ryan Williams, aka R-Willy, is one of the most exciting action sports athletes competing and performing today. A pioneer in scooter, where he’s landed many World First tricks, R-Willy has started to make a serious run at the BMX world, finishing first in the BMX Best Tricks event two years in a row at Nitro World Games. In 2017 he also tasted sweet redemption by winning the NWG Scooter Event, in the process becoming the first athlete to win two events and the first athlete to podium in two disciplines at NWG. Each and every time he drops in, there’s a chance he’ll be landing a trick no one has ever seen before.

Rides Contraptions

Most Nitro athletes are among the best in the world at one, sometimes two action sports. Almost all of them dabble in a few more just for variety. But Dusty Wygle is a rare athlete who is willing to try anything, including the weird stuff, and he’s somehow great at all of it. In the live show he rides all the crazy contraptions — the rocking horse, the boogie board, trikes — as well as pitbikes and mountain bikes. Dusty truly is an action sports renaissance man.

Nitro veteran Ethen Roberts is about as versatile as they come. He can ride almost anything like a pro, and he’s world-class at several disciplines, particularly mountain bike, which is what he focuses on most in the Nitro show. He has several World Firsts on MTB, including being one of the first to land a triple backflip on a mountain bike, among several other records. Ethen started racing motorcycles when he was 3 years old and eventually got into BMX racing, but the lure of freestyle won him over in the end. He was the youngest kid in the world to backflip a motorbike at age 14, and he never looked back.

Rides BMX

Idaho native Kurtis Downs is one of the most dynamic and innovative BMX riders in the game. He tends to keep a low profile, but his podium finish at the inaugural Nitro World Games in BMX Best Tricks and his medal in his first-ever X Games are testaments to his skill. His super technical riding that is inspired by FMX — including the World First BMX stripper flip — is something you don't want to miss. That FMX influences his riding is no coincidence. Kurtis started out riding dirtbikes at a very young age and got into racing. His first attempt at a trick on BMX was at a moto race — he attempted a barspin on another kid’s bike. A few weeks later, he picked up his own bike, and a legend was born.

Rides FMX

Jarryd McNeil grew up in Kerang, Australia, and began riding dirtbikes at 2 and a half years old. About six years later, Jarryd began his career as a motocross racer, where he went on to win multiple state and national championships before turning pro. At 18, his interest shifted to freestyle, and he began investing the majority of his time in FMX. In 2010, he received an invite to the X Games and decided to make the move to the United States. Since then, he has collected nine X Games medals, qualified for three AMA Outdoor Nationals, taken 1st at the Monster Energy Cup Biggest Whip competition twice, and taken 1st at the Monster Energy Cup Quarter Pipe Big Air Competition. Aside from competing against the world's best FMX athletes, Jarryd enjoys touring the world and wowing crowds with his extended Nitro Circus family.

Like many of the athletes in the Nitro Crew, Jaie Toohey got his start in racing but quickly discovered that, while speed and competition are awesome, he was more drawn to the inverted world of freestyle. The Australia native made the transition to the park and ramps and has been wowing at Nitro shows ever since, joining the World First club along the way. In 2017, Jaie made the podium at the second Nitro World Games and is looking to add to his competition resume in years to come.

As Nitro’s resident roller snowboarder, Brandon Schmidt occupies one of the most specific slots in the live show. He’s one of the few athletes who’s world-class in that sport, having landed the World’s First triple backflip on the rollerboard. But even though that’s his main focus, he’s a well-rounded action sports athlete who rides BMX and trikes in the Nitro show too. In fact, he stunned the BMX world when he made the finals of the BMX Best Tricks event at the inaugural Nitro World Games. He’s also legitimately one of the most positive and friendly people you’ll ever meet, as his teammates are quick to point out. When you add it all up, it might be impossible to figure out who likes Brandon more: Nitro audiences or Nitro athletes.

Nicknamed “Warrior,” Jed Mildon hasn’t slowed down since making history in 2011 with the BMX triple backflip, which immediately changed the game for all his peers. At the time, he was working as a welder, and he convinced a local McDonald’s to drum up the cash for the Guinness World Records application. Video of his success immediately went viral, and it wasn’t long before the biggest names in the game came calling. He followed that up in 2015 with the World First BMX quadruple backflip during what has been called the biggest week in action sports history.

Veteran FMXer Beau Bamburg has performed and competed his entire pro career, always a contender for a medal in moto and a crowd favorite at Nitro shows around the world. He’s a versatile rider who can go from challenging for the top prize in a whip competition to sticking the three-person backflip, with plenty of huge tricks and combos in between. And when he’s not on his bike, you can probably find him playing his guitar.
