In 2012 for the first time ever Travis Pastrana and the crew extended their insane Nitro Circus tour into Europe. The tour stops included the UK, Germany, Sweeden, Austria, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Belgium! We made it to the London round to get in on the action first hand!

For the three stops in the UK in December, Red Bull have launched an awesome and possibly death defying competition – ‘Challenge Travis’ This is your chance as a Nitro Circus fan to come up with the most rediculous stunt possible for the crew to attempt live ( bear in mind all the crazy s**t these guys have already done! ) Just submit your idea below and once all the insane suggestions have been read, the best one will be picked and the challenge is on!
Enter your Challenge Travis idea Here! – Competition closed – winner will be announced soon!
Red Bull have brought out a pimped limited edition Challenge Travis Nitro Circus can for this – it’s even got a QR code on it so you can scan that sucka, and get access to Nitro Circus videos, gear, tickets, updates and more, so keep an eye out for them!
TRAVIS PASTRANA CHALLANGES YOU – ARE YOU BRAVE ENOUGH?
Red Bull gives Nitro Circus fans the oppertunity to prove their bravery!
After much build up and anticipation Red Bull ‘Travis Challenges You’ came to a knuckle biting head last week as the legions of hopeful applicants were whittled down to three and invited up to Shropshire to accept their challenge.
Natalya Platonova, Will Steevenson and Dave Compton were the lucky trio who made it down to the final selection process and with it, the chance to take on a once in a lifetime Nitro Circus challenge.
Travis invited fellow Nitro Circus crew member and up and coming FMX star Josh Sheehan along to the Red Bull Pro Nationals motocross event at Hawkestone Park in Shropshire to help with the Challenge. Josh, who regularly performs double back flips as part of Nitro Circus Live was invited to the UK from Australia by Red Bull to offer one fan a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform the most gnarly of challenges – check out the video Here to see what went down.
Travis pushed these guys to the next level and you still have the chance to submit your challenge to him when Nitro Circus Live comes to the UK in December, Travis and his crew might just perform it for you.
