Travis Pastrana madness

Posted by Jamie Hibbard at 4:08 pm on Tuesday March 24, 2009

I really don’t need to say anything more than this: Freestyle motorcross rider and all round legend Travis Pastrana, a big wheel trike and a frankly enormous ramp in the middle of nowhere. Oh, and I guess the last word should be: backflip. It’s pretty funny:

Here he is in more regular habitat, rallying at the X-Games:

And pulling a double backflip on a motorcross bike:

    That’s so class! I love the fact that it is a pink trike as well. The whole thing looks like a Jackass stunt. Just one question – can he drift that trike?!

    That’s incredible! Travis Pastrana is a great guy, i recommend to everyone to check out some of his other videos on the ‘Tube’. I love the replay of the 1st and 3rd attempt. It was a great idea and the attempts were awsome! Next time try the jump in the Espace F1 from the previous blog, that would be insane!

    I don’t think the X-games announcer understands how to corner properly on pavement.

    The best bit is he’s wearing a suit in the trike-flip. Fantastic, now all he has to do is double backflip it.

    Fantastic!

    I know where the ramp is…
    It’s in Brazil in Bob burnquist’s back garden. For those of you who don’t know who Bob burnquist is he is a proffestional skatboader… with a very big ramp (the biggest in the world, i think) in his very very big garden.

    @23. Helloo

    Yup! The ramp is in Bob Burnquist’s backyard, but it is in Vista, California, where he lives. He’s a legend himself having the highest-ever score on a X-Games skateboard event and for jumping over the Grand Canyon with skate. :P

    user995 is spot on; this stunt appeared on the Thrillbillies 2 (Nitro Circus 6) DVD. I don’t know if its been re-used in the Nitro Circus TV serie yet as I haven’t seen it!

    And to Stig’s Irish Cousin if you check out the Thrillbillies 2 DVD they do manage to drift the big wheels on a downhill run!
