Travis Pastrana is a legend on both four wheels and two, though he has earned much of his fame from having none in contact with the ground.

A YouTube sensation, Pastrana is best known for stunts including jumping out of a plane without a parachute and the longest ever jump in a car over water.

He became the youngest freestyle motocross world champion at the age of 14 and wowed the X Games by becoming the first rider ever to nail the double backflip. Pastrana’s range of silverware is impressive, with 11 X Games gold medals and four Rally America titles to go with all his two-wheeled glory.

His Race Of Champions record is also mighty. In 2005 Pastrana made it to the semi-finals where he was knocked out by Sébastien Loeb in his own Citroën rally car. That was despite driving with a broken leg sustained in a freestyle motocross exhibition jump at the same event. The next year he single-handedly took Team USA to the ROC Nations Cup final after Jimmie Johnson and his replacement Scott Speed were injured just before the event.

It’s alongside fellow Rallycross ace Speed that Pastrana will now attempt to claim America’s first Nations Cup title since 2002.
