Travis Pastrana pulls off a world’s first stunt ‘10 years in the making’

Travis Pastrana, a well-known and accomplished motorsports competitor, is also known for pulling off outrageous stunts on a motorcycle, and his latest ranks right up there as one of his best.

“What a day it was to witness Travis Pastrana do yet another mind-blowing stunt,” Levi LaVallee, a snowmobile racer and stunt performer, wrote on Facebook. “[I’m] absolutely floored by this! Travis Pastrana, you are from a different planet.”

What the 35-year-old Pastrana pulled off was what he called a double back flip 360.

“Snowboarders call it a ‘Double-Quark-1080,’” he wrote on Facebook. “In the BMX world it’s called an Ausi-Roll. On a trampoline it’s a ‘half-in-half-out.’ Call it what you will, I call it 10 years of practice coming together in one lucky, [amazing] 65-foot off-the-ground jump.”

Nitro Circus introduced the jump as “Pastrana’s insane new world’s first, 10 years in the making.”

The jump is part of a one-hour online movie called “Action Figures The Movie 2” on Sony Crackle.

“Travis you once again sealed your name into the action sports hall of fame!” one Facebook commenter wrote. “Truly unreal and mind-blowing. I knew you still had something major up your sleeve!”
