to follow in our heroes’ footsteps as we came up.”

About Nitro Circus:

Named #22 on Forbes magazine’s 2015 list of America’s Most
Promising Companies, Nitro Circus continues to position itself as the
world’s leading youth action sports & entertainment brand. From humble
beginnings in 2003 – with Jeremy Rawle, Gregg Godfrey and extreme sports
superstar Travis Pastrana producing DVDs from a Utah garage – to a smash
TV series which has aired in over 60 countries, Nitro Circus has
exploded to global popularity. In 2012, Nitro Circus: The Movie,
featuring cast members from the hit television series, was released in
cinemas worldwide. In 2015, Nitro Circus announced a partnership with
NBC Sports Ventures. The multi-year strategic alliance will feature TV
specials and series programming airing nationally in the U.S. on NBC and
NBCSN as well as streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra.

The TV show was transformed by current CEO and action sports industry
guru Michael Porra into a must-see live event in 2010, creating the
global touring phenomenon that is Nitro Circus Live. Since its inaugural
Australian trek six years ago, the show has travelled the globe,
obliterating box office records and cultivating a legion of diehard
fans. Nitro Circus has now rolled across five continents, blown away
over two million fans and sold-out shows in the United States, Canada,
Europe, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, the Middle East and South
Africa. After close to 100 shows globally in 2015 and with a packed 2016
schedule, Nitro Circus is the world’s most successful action sports
touring brand.
