New Season Kicks Off Ahead of Nitro Circus Live 2014 North American Tour

NEW YORK, NY (November 7, 2013) - MTV2 and Travis Pastrana today announced that third season of "Nitro Circus Live" will premiere Tuesday, November 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2. "Nitro Circus Live" season three spans eight half-hour episodes that follow the Nitro crew as they traverse the globe and dazzle international audiences, led by 10-time X Games gold medalist Pastrana as he takes his fearless crew made up of well-known and accomplished action sports stars on a tour across Hong Kong, Bali, New Zealand, Russia and his home base in Maryland. The series also features all the hilarious, behind the scenes antics of the Nitro Circus Live tour, as Travis and 40 of the world's craziest action sports starts attempt to occupy themselves on their days off in whatever way they can.

Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana will bring Nitro Circus Live - the action sports spectacle that has become a worldwide hit, to 13 North American cities in January 2014. "I am beyond excited to bring Nitro Circus home to the U.S. and up to Canada," said Pastrana. We know the new season of 'Nitro Circus Live' will get our fans amped for January."

Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world's best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family. Featuring the stars of Nitro Circus' hit MTV2 show and Nitro Circus 3D film, the tour is headed up by Pastrana, a 10-time X Games gold medalist in Freestyle Motocross who has also become a fixture on the NASCAR, Supercross and rally racing circuits.

Originally a small DVD series filmed in Pastrana's Maryland backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV show broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The next step was Nitro Circus Live, which has captured the imagination of fans worldwide with a string of sell-out shows and record-breaking crowds across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The tour is a fully choreographed action sports spectacular combining big stunts and outrageous feats on an array of contraptions launched off Nitro Circus Live's multi-million dollar set and famous 50-ft. Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.

"Nitro Circus Live" is executive produced by Chris McCarthy, Paul Ricci and Randi Gewirtz for MTV2 and Travis Pastrana, Gregg Godfrey, Jeremy Rawle, Michael Porra, Trip Taylor and Bobby Pura for Nitro Circus Live PTY, LTD.
