The world’s most exciting, adrenalin-charged, live action-sports show, Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus Live is gearing up for the biggest and most spectacular tour in its history when it returns to Australian shores in May 2014.
Here is a project I put together in 2008 with a 100% rollerblader crew. It has been on my back burner until now.

In 2012, Nitro Circus Live rolled across the UK, with 3 massive shows and over 30,000 fans packed into stadiums throughout England.
And in November 2013… we’re coming back! We’ll be showcasing an all new show, featuring Travis Pastrana and 40 of the world’s best in FMX, BMX and skate, plus outrageous stunts off the 50-foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.
[...] For your info Chris Haffey’s trick list was as follows: Cork Parallel 900, Flatspin 540, 360 on a BMX to land on his skates (see vid below), pass-a-skateboard-to-a-bmxer-mid-air attempt, shopping trolley air, safety 360, double Flatspin 540 attempt, Fakie Zero-spin, double Flatspin 540 (landed) on the end of a train of BMXers.
Tonight was really real. Chris Haffey undoubtedly has done the greatest job of exposing rollerblading to a more mainstream audience.
I’ve no doubt kids will start skating as a direct result! It really felt like rollerblading was playing a major part in the whole show, not just a sideline event like we are used to. – Jake Eley.
