Nitro Circus Wollongong

The most exciting crew in action sports is heading back to Australia! Next fall, global superstar Travis Pastrana will lead Nitro Circus Live in an electrifying all-new event. The Next Level Tour will feature revolutionary ramp technology, including an all-new Big Air version of the Nitro World Games’ groundbreaking FMX Best Trick ramp – the first time ever it has been ridden outside of the United States. Inspired by the jaw-dropping ramp used by Josh Sheehan in 2015 to stomp the previously unthinkable triple backflip on a motorbike, the FMX Big Air ramp has a similarly distinguished pedigree. The USA’s Gregg Duffy landed the world’s first double frontflip in 2016 while this year Canberra’s own Henry Bink scored a world’s first of his own: an incredible frontflip rock solid. It is truly a monster setup that will push progression forward, with a lander more than 30-feet tall and a takeoff that hurls riders over 60-feet in the air. In all, only 10 athletes have dared to hit it, an exclusive shortlist that, besides Duffy and Bink, includes Pat Bowden, Jackson “Jacko” Strong, Clinton Moore, William Van den Putte, Brodie Carmichael, Tom Pages, Josh Sheehan and Travis Pastrana himself.
