Nitro Circus

Daredevil: One who is recklessly bold.

First there was Evel Knievel

Now there is Travis Pastrana

And... Seth Enslow

And... Ghostrider

And... Countless others.

News from 2008-03-29
Australian freestyle motocrosser and distance jumper Robbie Maddison has extended his world-record distance jump to approximately 351 feet at the Crusty Demons Night of World Records, in Australia. Maddison out-jumped Ryan Capes, who landed an impressive 324' jump, and Seth Enslow, who slightly surpassed the 300' mark.
What's next for the undisputed king of jumpers? Maddison told Racer X Films that he thinks he can get 400'. Stay tuned....

Just when you think that someone is the best, along comes someone as good or better.

This stuff is amazing to watch and extremely entertaining for both the competitors and the audience... Which feed off of each other in a frenzy of thrill.

I wonder. Where does it end when there is no goal?
