In 2016, action sport competition was changed FOREVER. They said it couldn’t be done… They were wrong! Stars emerged. Minds were blown. And the impossible became a reality. And that was only the beginning. Nitro World Games is BACK and you can be there, to witness history in the making!
After making global headlines in its debut year, with electrifying feats, an unprecedented amount of world firsts, and millions watching on NBC and online across the globe, Nitro World Games will now raise the bar even higher. The groundbreaking competition returns to Salt Lake City on Saturday, June 24 when Rice-Eccles Stadium hosts an adrenaline-fueled competition to see who will be crowned world champion in action sports’ most exciting disciplines: FMX, BMX, Skate, Inline and Scooter. NBC will televise the action-packed finals in primetime in the U.S.
Action sports icon, Travis Pastrana, who created the event alongside Nitro Circus CEO, Mike Porra said: “Progression is what Nitro World Games is all about. While I was so pumped to see the riders rise to the challenge this summer and send it with huge world’s firsts, we are working hard to take things to another level in 2017.”
Nitro World Games revitalized action sports with its inaugural debut. Mind-blowing feats like Gregg Duffy’s unprecedented FMX double frontflip, the first time the trick was ever attempted in competition, and superstar Ryan Williams’ massive 1080 BMX frontflip pushed riders to heights few thought possible. With breakthrough ramp technology, new judging and scoring formats, Nitro World Games is a complete reboot of action sports competition.
