Any fan of action sports will know the name. Travis Pastrana was born in Maryland, and by 4 years old he was already riding a one-speed motorcycle. Despite excelling in mountain biking and his studies (he graduated from high school three years early), the youngster knew motorsports were his calling from early on. He won five Loretta Lynn National Amateur crowns beginning in 1992, plus a handful of Canadian titles for good measure. In 1998, the then 14-year-old captured the world freestyle championship, serving notice of his versatility. But he was just getting started. In 2001, Travis was awarded Motocross Rider of the Year at the ESPN Action Sports & Music Awards. He has accumulated 17 X Games medals, including 11 gold medals, plus five golds from the Gravity Games, as well more wins at other events, including Dew Tour and Red Bull X-Fighters. At the 2006 X-Games, Travis redefined what was possible in FMX with his groundbreaking double backflip on a motorbike. ESPN highlighted the historic World’s First in a 2014 20th anniversary X-Games celebration, and the city of Los Angeles named it one of the greatest moments in Staples Center history (alongside L.A. Lakers and Kings championships and sold-out concerts by U2, Garth Brooks, and more). As the ringleader of Nitro Circus, Travis is committed to the progression of action sports as a whole.
