Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Travis Pastrana knows no bounds. If that wasn???t clear in 1999, when he launched his dirt bike into the San Francisco Bay after winning his first X Games gold, or three years later when he back flipped his bike into the void of the Grand Canyon, then it should be now after The Big Jump: The Tao of Travis Pastrana . ?? In?? The Big Jump, Pastrana reveals for the first time the beliefs and experiences that drive him to accomplish such amazing feats. Each chapter builds to his latest breathtaking accomplishment, the???impossible??? double backflip during X Games 12. The stunt brought him not just gold, but legend certification. With a foreword by Mat Hoffman, widely considered the Godfather of BMX, who developed the Bicycle Stunt Series and owns Hoffman Bikes.

Synopsis:

Travis Pastrana, the most celebrated freestyle motocross rider in the world, knows no bounds. In 1999 he celebrated his first X Games gold by launching his bike into San Francisco Bay. Three years later, he rode straight into the Grand Canyon, On purpose. In the Big Jump: The Tao of Travis Pastrana, he makes his biggest leap yet, revealing for the first time the methods (and madness) that fuel his amazing feats. At 14 Pastrana was the youngest World Freestyle Motocross champion. At 17 he was the youngest racer ever to represent Team USA in the Motocross des Nations. Each of The Big Jump's chapters builds toward another breathtaking accomplishment, ending with the "impossible" double backflip during X Games 12 that brought Pastrana not just gold but certified legend status. With a foreword by Mat Hoffman, the godfather of BMX. The Big Jump is a fuel-injected ride into the mind and heart of Travis Pastrana.
