While bringing the tour to Madison Square Garden for the first time, we chopped it up with Pastrana and got him to reveal the next record-breaking stunt he plans to land, what it’s like to finally bring the show to the states, and that one stunt he strongly recommends we don’t try at home.Can you give us a rundown on the history behind the Nitro Circus brand?I was one of 10 women seeded to race at the X Games, which is a pretty prestigious little thing, and I had to sit and watch!
Recently, he’s taken his show on the road with the non-stop, no hold barred tour that is Nitro Circus Live. Think more along the lines of over 40 riders in skate, BMX, freestyle motorcross, roller blades, and more performing stunts that defy the law of physics and make for an amazing live experience.
For me the backflip was something that set me down a different path in life, I was introduced to and it all snow balled from there.
Many people, man, women and children throughout the years have acknowledged the different things I have done and been apart of, they are all support and kind, it is very flattering.
It's a challenge but if you love what you do and you are up for the challenge, the ride and the rewards, are all definitely worth the hard work and years! A sex symbol thought, I have to say that's in the eye of the beholder.
Jolene Van Vugt may get ribbed quite a bit from her "brothers" on MTV's "Nitro Circus," but on the eve of the series' Season 2 premiere (Thusday, Aug. EST), the Ontario native was feeling nothing but love.

I’m hoping to go to the surgeon next week, and hopefully he can get rid of it for me.
