Frenchman Thomas Pagès has been confirmed to appear in Nitro Circus Live’s upcoming New Zealand tour, adding yet another exciting ingredient to a show that already boasts the cream of the world’s top FMX riders.

This year, Pagès’ signature 360 and body varial tricks saw him claim a first and second place in the Red Bull X-Fighters tour. Now, joining the Nitro Circus Live tour, he will be free from competitive pressures and ready to take his riding to a new level.

The 27-year-old joins 13 times X Games medallist Nate Adams (USA) and X Games gold medallist and double backflipper, Cam Sinclair (AUS) as well as multiple X Games medallists Blake ‘Bilko’ Williams (AUS),  king of the FMX whip Jarryd McNeil (AUS), Sydney X Fighters Champion Josh Sheehan (AUS), Beau Bamburg (USA), and New Zealand’s comeback kid Luke Smith (NZ) on the Nitro Circus tour over the new Zealand summer.

Nitro Circus Live is a two and a half hour fully choreographed action sports spectacular. Each show combines the biggest and best freestyle motocross (FMX) stunts with insane BMX and skateboard action, as well as the famous Nitro Circus crew performing outrageous feats on a crazy array of contraptions launched off the 50 foot high Nitro Gigant-A-Ramp.

Fans can expect to see everything from kids’ trikes, snow skis, tandem bikes and razor scooters through to shopping trolleys, a Barbie car and even a drinks cooler launched with skill off the Gigant-A-Ramp.

The show also features spectacular choreographed FMX riding, including the 10 rider Nitro backflip combination train, which has to be seen to be believed.

The 2013 NZ tour follows a 14 stop, 7 country sell-out tour of Europe.
