Travis Pastrana Backflips Over Moving Barges

The X Games legend Travis Pastrana pulled a dangerous backflip while jumping between two barges. The barges were not anchored or tied to the shore; they were simply floating 75 meters apart on the river Thames. Pastrana managed to perform the stunt with a limited runway and became the first rider to achieve such a performance.

The stunt was performed to promote the Nitro Circus tour across Europe starting with Birmingham on November 20.  Travis Pastrana promises this will be the coolest till now: “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. 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.”
