Canadian sensation Jolene Van Vugt, known more specifically as “that crazy girl from the Nitro Circus,” can make a strong case as being the most exciting female action sports star. Jolene etched a name for herself by joining the ranks of Travis Pastrana, Andy Bell, and a slew of daredevils that are fit for straight jackets. In her tenure as a Nitro Circus member, Jolene became the first woman to backflip a full-size motocross bike off a ramp to dirt, BASE jump into the Grand Canyon off a motorcycle, backflip BMX bikes, and rag doll her way into superstardom (that little show on MTV didn’t hurt, either).
Upon hearing the news that the Nitro Circus is going to do a live show in Las Vegas on June 4th we couldn’t contain our excitement.
