They include action sports icon and  Nitro Circus ringleader Travis Pastrana, X Games Gold Medalist and the world's best scooter rider R Willy and  the world's youngest professional scooter rider and UK No.1 Jamie Hull.

 
 


TRAVIS PASTRANA
 


If you take Evel Knievel's life and multiply it by 10, you'll get Travis Pastrana's. From landing of his legendary double back flip at the 2006 X Games to jumping from an airplane without a parachute, rolling a rally car and launching -- with a passenger -- into the gaping maw of the Grand Canyon, Travis has done it all.
 


Most recently, last October Travis, the ringleader of Nitro Circus announced the You Got This tour with a huge stunt just outside the 02. In front of a huge throng of TV crews, photographers and reporters assembled on the banks of the iconic River Thames, Travis successfully landed the world’s first barge-to-barge motorcycle backflip.




The feat quickly went viral, making headlines worldwide and showcasing the boundary-breaking You Got This spirit.

Earlier this year Travis Pastrana succeeded in triplicating three of Evel Knievel’s iconic motorcycle jumps. Donning his own Knievel-like costume, Pastrana used an Indian Scout FTR750 to jump 143 feet to clear 52 crushed cars and 192 feet over 16 Greyhound buses and concluded the "Evel Live" event on the History Channel by jumping 149 feet to clear the fountains at Caesars Palace.

RYAN WILLIAMS   SCOOTER, BMX



In the world of extreme sports, Ryan 'R Willy' Williams  is known as the world's best scooter rider.And with world-first tricks like the triple back flip he has pushed human performance to the limits. Williams is also the only BMX rider to have successfully performed a triple front flip.



Growing up, he had dreams of one day day becoming a fighter pilot or an astronaut — because he wanted to push the limits of what is possible. Since as long as he can remember, R-Willy has been going to the skatepark.



Originally on rollerblades when he could first walk, and at 12 years old R-Willy found his calling when he started riding scooters for hours every day, perfecting his skills and raising the ceiling on what he thought achievable. At 15, R-Willy decided to start honing his skills on a BMX bike and progressed in scooter and BMX simultaneously.



After an online video of him went viral, he received an invitation from Nitro Circus to show the Crew his skills. His talent was undeniable, and despite having to overcome the stigma that comes with riding a scooter, Travis Pastrana and the rest of the Nitro Circus family were beyond impressed.



Now part of the Nitro Circus family, R-Willy is one the most versatile and exciting athletes in action sports. With countless World’s First tricks tied to his name (such as the first triple backflip on a scooter and the first triple frontflip on BMX), Ryan has amassed quite a fanbase (including over 1 million followers on Instagram).





JAMIE HULL


What were you up to at age 10? Chances are it didn’t involve becoming the youngest professional scooter rider in the world -– which means Jamie Hull has you beat.



Originally a BMX devotee who spent most of his spare time riding at the U.K.’s biggest indoor skatepark, Rampworx, Hull’s first scooters were “15 pounds for two from the local supermarket and would last me a couple of days.


Now at the ripe old age of 16, Hull has already ascended to no.1  in the U.K. scooter rankings.  He has performed World’s First double backflip quad tailwhip.
 
 
 
 
 
TRAVIS PASTRANA & NITRO CIRCUS GEAR UP FOR ALL NEW YOU GOT THIS TOUR

 
 Nitro Circus’ biggest moments, and some of its most notorious stacks, have come from the mind of action sports icon Travis Pastrana. For the Nitro Circus ringleader, pushing the envelope is just another day at the office. Pastrana also has an uncanny ability to encourage the Nitro crew to go big or go home… In some cases despite their better judgment! Now with the 2018 You Got This tour, Travis and company will ramp up the shenanigans with the greatest, craziest, funniest show in Nitro Circus history.
 
Kicking off 20 November, 2018 at Birmingham Arena, Nitro Circus: You Got This will visit 10 cities in six countries across the continent.
 
“Nitro Circus is turning me loose! With You Got This, I’m putting all of my best - and worst - ideas into one huge show. Everything I’ve ever wanted to see live, we’re taking on the road,” Pastrana says. “Expect bigger, brand-new ramps and even more ridiculous stunts. It’s going to be unreal. Look out, though. There might be a few rough landings.” 
 
Nitro Circus: You Got This will feature Travis Pastrana along with the best athletes in FMX, BMX, Scooter and Inline, including multiple X Games medalists and several Nitro World Games champions. Pastrana will lead this all-star international roster as they attempt both never before seen tricks and undoubtedly ill-advised stunts in an audacious all-new production complete with huge new ramps and outrageous contraptions. This show will be wide open, with more thrills, more excitement and more irreverence than ever before.
 
“You Got This is more than a tour, it’s a mindset,” Pastrana explains. “As Nitro’s ringleader, one of my jobs is to inspire guys to push themselves to go further, farther and faster than they thought they could. Sometimes, maybe more than they should! It’s a challenge, no doubt. But one we live for.”
 
The full tour itinerary for Nitro Circus: You Got This is below:
 

 
20, November 2018         Birmingham, GBR         Arena Birmingham
21, November 2018         Glasgow, GBR         The SSE Hydro
