MTV's eye-wateringly alarming new stunt show obliterates our screens every Sunday at 10pm from 5th April on MTV ONE, but can it cut the mustard?
If world-renowned daredevil Jonny Knoxville is anything to go by, then yes. The 'Jackass' star insisted on being the executive producer on 'Nitro Circus' which brings terrifying stunts to a jaw-dropping new level.
The five tight-knit, highly skilled adrenalin junkies are led by motorcycling champion, Travis Pastrana, on a non-stop white knuckle ride of risk-taking and thrill-seeking.
Whether it's jumping out of an aeroplane without a parachute (see below) or being the first person ever to double back flip a motorcycle, Pastrana's thirst for danger knows no limits. Check out some of the action here:
Meet the team of fearless adrenaline junkies by Pastrana's side:
Jolene Van Vugt: Jolene is one of the few girls that can handle her own in this testosterone driven crew. She is a world-class motocross racer and is fearless. She is the only girl in the world to successfully backflip a motorcycle over a gap. She adds an interesting element as she tries to compete with the boys while the boys will do anything to avoid getting beat by a cute girl.
Andy Bell: Andy is a washed up FMX rider that is known more for his party tricks and beer drinking than his prowess on a bike. His nickname is "Hasselhoff" because, despite his lack of talent, he is popular in Europe. Andy is a master at spurring on Travis and the Crew. However, he's not afraid to lay it on the line when the tables are turned.
Jim Dechamp: Jim has been one of Travis's closest friends since childhood. He is a professional mountain bike downhill racer and freestyle rider. Jim and Travis have a very collaborative relationship where they dream up all sorts of stunts. They started their stunt career as kids on big wheels and pedal bikes and have graduated to motorcycles, race cars, off-road trucks and anything else that goes fast and jumps far.
Erik "Rubberneck" Roner: Erik is a world-class extreme skier who has combined his passion for B.A.S.E. jumping to produce some incredible stunts. Travis likes to have him around because he always wears a helmet camera and knows how to pack a chute (Travis doesn't). First descents and good Mexican food make him happy.
Streetbike Tommy Passamonte: Tommy is fat, lazy and has no discernible skills (he would argue this point). However, he dreams of a day when he becomes famous and can stop working in construction. He will do anything to get there. In fact, he often gets ahead of himself by acting like a rock star (e.g. he charged $10,000 on his dad's credit card in one night at a club). Although he has not achieved his goal, his efforts never fail to entertain. Travis and the rest of the Crew keep him around for comic relief.
Got a taste for danger yet? Tune in to MTV ONE Sundays at 10pm and watch at your peril.
