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.
