With thrill-loving fans clamoring to experience the exhilaration that only live action sports can deliver, Nitro Circus is gearing up to make its highly-anticipated return this summer. Nitro Circus will bring the high-flying You Got This tour to Des Moines for a Saturday, September 4**th** show at Principal Park. This is part of an extensive North American trek that will visit more than 25 cities across the continent this year.

Fans can be there live as Nitro Circus’ roster of elite athletes, including champion BMX and scooter rider Ryan Williams as well as skilled professionals in freestyle motocross (FMX), skate and more, brave the world’s largest jumps. The legendary 45-foot Giganta ramp will launch athletes into the sky at 40 miles per hour, while on the moto side riders will send it 65-feet high. Nitro’s daredevils will also attempt the craziest stunts imaginable on new contraptions you never imagine could fly! With no roof there are no limits. These real-life action heroes are sure to inspire fans of all ages as they push the envelope at every show with incredible never-seen-before tricks. See a preview of the action here.

Nitro Circus: You Got This will feature a packed roster of top international action sports athletes highlighted by Australia’s Ryan Williams, a dual threat on both BMX and scooter. Williams is already a four-time Nitro World Games winner as well as a three-time X Games gold medalist. Nitro ringleader Travis Pastrana considers him, “Hands down, the best action sports athlete alive today.”

Decorated U.S. BMX rider Kurtis Downs will push Williams to raise his game every night. Last month Downs stunned America competing in TBS’ “Go-Big Show,” ultimately battling his way to the finals during the national broadcast. Mountain bike pro, Nitro Circus contraptions king and professional fun-haver Dusty Wygle will also brave the Giganta ramp, dropping in with vehicles that have no business going airborne.

Aussie Jarryd McNeil, the first moto rider to win four consecutive X Games golds in a single discipline (just a small portion of his 15-medal trophy case) will lead Nitro’s FMX team. The moto lineup also includes fellow countryman Blake “Bilko” Williams, a multiple X Games medalist in his own right, American FMX legend Adam Jones, Javier Villegas from Chile - an X Games medalist who has also podiumed at Nitro World Games – and more.

Fans looking to get an insider’s look at the You Got This tour can enjoy Mic’d Up Live, the Nitro Circus VIP experience. Mic’d Up Live offers fans under the helmet access to the biggest show in action sports.

“After the tremendous disappointment of having to postpone our North American tour for the past year, we are so excited to get back out on the road and deliver action-packed fun to live audiences again,” says Joe Carr, CEO of Thrill One Sports and Entertainment, parent company of Nitro Circus. “Every live show is an immediate adrenaline rush that must be experienced in person. The Nitro Circus athletes have missed the roar of a live crowd and can’t wait to reconnect with our amazing Des Moines fans.”

“Nitro Circus is the epitome of thrilling entertainment,” said Denny Baxter, President & CEO of Indigo Road Entertainment. “We have always been committed to producing top-notch live experiences, and audiences can expect nothing less than awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping performances from our partners at Nitro Circus.”
