Travis’s action sports credentials are without parallel: He is a 17-time X Games medalist, winning his first at age 15, a five-time U.S. amateur motocross champion and holds several World Firsts including the groundbreaking double backflip on a motorcycle in 2006. Pastrana is also a champion rally car driver and has raced the NASCAR circuit.
But Travis is just as at home in front of the camera as he is on a bike or behind the wheel. Pastrana created the “Nitro Circus Live” global television phenomenon as well as starred in Nitro Circus: The Movie, which hit cinemas worldwide in 2012.
His social media impact, increasingly the barometer of cultural relevance, is huge: Travis has nearly six million fans on Facebook, has more one million Followers on Instagram and reaches over 900,000 fans on Twitter — one of the biggest social followings in all of sport and entertainment.
While his many competitions, tours and media responsibilities require him to travel often, Travis’ main priority is his family. He is married to professional skateboarder, fellow Nitro Circus athlete and X Games medalist Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins Pastrana. The action sports power couple are raising two daughters: Addy 18-months old daughter and Bristol 2 months old. Without a doubt the Pastrana’s are the most extreme sports family on the planet!
The Nitro Circus is at the Amalie Arena on May the 5th.
