I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to ride the Nitro Circus mega Ramp when it was in Sydney last week on there Australian Tour.
So i finished up after a full days work and headed out to the olympic park. It was definitely up there with the most incredible experiences of my life! Especially cause there is no pulling out once you drop in on the gigantic Roll before hitting the 50ft gap. ;) Good times! – CJ Wellsmore.

Format, Scoring & Ramps.
In the Nitro World Games Inline Best Tricks Event, the world’s top 5 athletes in inline skating will compete to become the Inline Best Tricks World Champion at the Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City on Saturday, July 16.
During this finals-only event, each athlete will get three attempts to earn the highest combined score across his highest two scoring tricks.
Nitro Circus features the best in the world in the top action sports: FMX, BMX, skateboard, inline, scooter, snowboarding, skiing, quad, snowmobile, the list goes on.
But when we want a break from back flipping those things, it can be hard to find something else to ride off the ramp. That’s why we invent new things. The contraptions we launch off Giganta range from things that have wheels but aren’t meant to be flipped, like kids tricycles and penny farthings, to things that aren’t even supposed to have wheels in the first place, like rocking horses and whiskey barrels.
They’re always crowd-pleasers, and they’re often the result of some of the dumbest ideas we’ve ever had. Check out five of the best shots of Nitro contraptions in action.
