Nitro World Games returns to Utah Motorsports Campus in what guarantees to be an action-packed day of total mayhem, insane progression, and jaw-dropping competition. This event is a family friendly, all ages event.
This year will feature the best athletes in the world competing in FMX Best Trick, Moto Quarterpipe, Nitro Rallycross, and Super Hooligan Racing.
Don’t go hungry. A variety of local food and beverage vendors will be available throughout the event.
Get your game on. Enter here and you will be greeted with ice cold Red Bull and 11 open gaming stations.
You’ve already seen numerous World’s Firsts landed in this discipline. No telling what might happen this year. After wowing the world the past three years, FMX Best Trick will return to Nitro World Games in August. This is the event that brought us Gregg Duffy’s double frontflip in 2016, Harry Bink’s frontflip rock solid in 2017, and Pat Bowden’s look back Christ air backflip in 2018. One thing is certain, the competition will be steep heading in to this year’s contest.
Formatting will remain the same as years past: Each athlete will get two attempts to execute the best trick of their choice, with judges scoring tricks in real-time.
Moto Quarterpipe came to Nitro World Games in 2018 and instantly added a new level of excitement. With a takeoff nearly double the size of anything else out there, this groundbreaking contest left the crowd speechless.
The event features a one-of-a-kind mechanical quarterpipe with an adjustable degree of takeoff and landing. Standing 32 feet tall and 70 feet wide, this setup allows riders to shoot for the stars.
During the competition, riders will have two attempts to clear the baseline starting height. The height will be increased after each round, and the rider who is able to clear the highest mark will become champion. The first champion was Colby Raha, clearing a jaw-dropping 45 feet, 2 inches.
Travis Pastrana called it “Hell Track for cars.” In 2018, rallycross joined the growing lineup, and in the spirit of progression that Nitro World Games has become known for, the track, format, and competitor field was like nothing the world had ever seen before. That included one of the largest jumps ever in rallycross.
In the inaugural event, nine of the top rally drivers in the world competed to become the first-ever NRX champion, and when the dust settled Timmy Hansen took home the victory, with Mattias Ekstrom and Tanner Foust rounding out the podium. Other competitors for the inaugural event included Ken Block, Scott Speed, Travis Pastrana, Chris Atkinson, Steve Arpin, and Patrik Sandell.
The 2019 Super Hooligan National Championship will feature top riders, including Andy DiBrino, Frankie Garcia, and current points leader Joe Kopp. Their bikes are all 750cc or greater and must have stock frames, 19-inch wheels and tires, and twin multi-cylinder motors.
In flat track, the bikes get sideways and the riders get up close and personal while jockeying for position, yet they reach speeds closing in on 100 mph. In short, this is the perfect addition to Nitro World Games that expands the race offering with an exciting and action-packed event that pushes the limits.
Created by Nitro Circus and action sports icon Travis Pastrana, Nitro World Games pushes the limits of action sports competition. Featuring new big air formats, breakthrough ramp technology, and innovative judging criteria, Nitro World Games shifted the landscape for both athletes and the industry alike in its 2016 debut.
