No Questions Asked Nitro Circus Is Insane

Hey Cuties,

The family and I set out for some Sunday fun at Nitro Circus. We didn’t tell the kids where we were going until the day prior. The Manchild was excited, he knows exactly what Nitro Circus is. LittleCuteLips, on the other hand, thought it was a traditional circus. Nope! Nitro Circus is the exact opposite of traditional.  Think of the most ridiculous things and then do them backward.

Nitro Circus is an action based sports entertainment filled with mind blowing foolish tricks. They take the meaning of daredevils to another level. This is a don’t try this at home, at your friend’s house or ever in life type of thing.  Travis Pastrana started by making DVDs of he and his friends doing stupid stunts.  The DVD did so well it became a show on MTV in 2009, it was one of MTV’s most popular series of all time.

We’ve been fans for many years, thanks to Babe. He rides motorcycles and dirt bikes so his interest spilled over to us.

We headed out to the Navy Marine Corps, Memorial Stadium in Annapolis Maryland. Fun Fact: Travis Pastrana is from Annapolis so it was dope to perform in his home town. It rained like crazy and they had to delay the start by a little over an hour. The sky cleared up and they got started. By the time intermission was set to roll around the skies opened back up and dumped like crazy for a solid 30 minutes. Some ran for cover, others sat in the rain. I’m talking your undergarments and socks were soaked sitting in the rain.

That morning Babe picked up ponchos for us and we were ready. Everyone kept telling us how smart we were as they were soaking wet. During the rain, we stayed in our seats with our ponchos on unbothered by the down pour. The kids loved it, it makes for a good story and fun family time.

Travis Pastrana is most famous for motocross, he rides mountain bikes, BMX bikes and pretty much anything with wheels.  He hails from Annapolis, Maryland and is very proud of that. He still has a home here where is tries out some of these crazy stunts before showing the world.

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 2016, with the success of the inaugural Nitro World Games, Pastrana once again raised the bar for FMX and action sports in general.

Since you didn’t get a chance to see the show I am bringing some of the show to you. If you have kids please show them this video, they would go crazy for it. If you are now fans of Nitro Circus look them up and see if they are headed to a city near you. The footage is dope, but it is nothing like being in the seat watching. Peep my official video intro, I’m fancy now.
