Nitro Circus extreme sports tour coming to Sacramento’s Cal Expo in May

Extreme sports collective Nitro Circus will be coming to Sacramento for the first time in May, bringing its “You Got This” tour to Cal Expo along with several X Games athletes.

Nitro Circus, co-founded in 2003 by motorsports veteran Travis Pastrana, is known for its daredevil antics and has turned out tours, TV shows and even a full-length film.

“You Got This” will be at Papa Murphy’s Park on May 19 with athletes boasting more than 45 X Games medals between them, according to a news release issued by Nitro Circus.

Notable freestyle motocross riders who will be coming to Sacramento include 19-time X Games medalist Nate Adams, 12-time X Games medalist Jarryd McNeil and 8-time X Games medalist Mike Mason. Other athletes will include Ryan Williams, Kurtis Downs and Vicki Golden, according to the release.

Nitro Circus will be setting up its “Giganta” ramp in the park, which can launch riders up to five stories in the air, according to the release.

The tour will be visiting Sugar Land, Texas and Lake Elsinore, California before appearing in Sacramento.

“We’ll attempt record-breaking feats and spectacular stunts for an action-packed show that is fun for fans of all ages,” Nitro Circus said of the “You Got This” tour on its website.
