Nitro World Games 2016 Changed action sports forever…and that was only the begin
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.
The brainchild of action sports legend Travis Pastrana and Nitro Circus Creative Director and CEO Mike Porra, the event is a culmination of decades of experience and years of research, planning, testing, and polishing. The event condenses more action into one night than you’ll see all year, with competitions in FMX, BMX, skate, inline, and scooter all going down within one massive show that sees seven champions crowned during its three-hour run.
The formats push progression, with an emphasis on big tricks. To win at the Games, athletes truly must try something no one has ever done in competition. To that end, the ramps are bigger than ever, specially designed and tested by some of the best, most experienced ramp technicians and riders in the world and overseen by Pastrana and Porra. Open qualifying for most of the events means that anyone in the world has a shot at competing on the biggest stage in action sports.
It will all be happening June 24 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, which in itself is the perfect setting for the biggest action sports competition of the year. Salt Lake, in addition to being the birthplace of Nitro Circus, is a city where you can ride your dirtbike in the morning, kayak in the afternoon, and then in the evening catch a great live band after an amazing dinner. It’s the perfect city for your next action sports getaway, and you might as well plan it so you’re there during the Nitro World Games this summer.
