NEW YORK, NY (November 7, 2013) - MTV2 and Travis Pastrana today announced that third season of "Nitro Circus Live" will premiere Tuesday, November 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV2. "Nitro Circus Live" season three spans eight half-hour episodes that follow the Nitro crew as they traverse the globe and dazzle international audiences, led by 10-time X Games gold medalist Pastrana as he takes his fearless crew made up of well-known and accomplished action sports stars on a tour across Hong Kong, Bali, New Zealand, Russia and his home base in Maryland. The series also features all the hilarious, behind the scenes antics of the Nitro Circus Live tour, as Travis and 40 of the world's craziest action sports starts attempt to occupy themselves on their days off in whatever way they can.

Nitro Circus founder, ringleader and world-class athlete Travis Pastrana will bring Nitro Circus Live - the action sports spectacle that has become a worldwide hit, to 13 North American cities in January 2014. "I am beyond excited to bring Nitro Circus home to the U.S. and up to Canada," said Pastrana. We know the new season of 'Nitro Circus Live' will get our fans amped for January."

Nitro Circus Live showcases over 40 of the world's best action sports athletes performing daring and often record-breaking tricks in freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding, along with heart-stopping stunts on unique contraptions rarely attempted outside of the Nitro Circus family.
