Nitro Circus is coming to the USA!

Yes that's right, the same show that's toured in Australia and New Zealand featuring all your favorite superheroes such as Travis Pastrana, Special Greg, Andy Buckworth, Jaie Toohey and more including of course, Cam McCaul and Jim DeChamp.

The first show will be in Las Vegas this Saturday night at the MGM Grand, the full tour will follow later this year.

As a little teaser for you all we decided to do an interview with Cam and Jim and talk about the event and how it all came together for them. Check out the photos below and listen to the guys talk about various aspects of the tour and other random stuff!

In 2005 I went to Barcelona with Cam and Jim. I had a moustache, and Jim drew one on Cam, everything was good until Cam decided Jim should have one as well. It's now 2011 and nothing has changed...

Jim invited Cam down to southern California to ride the megaramp and try out for the Nitro Circus Tour. While he was there he met his fiance and started a whole new part of his life

I found this canyon gap with Cam back in 2005, since then he's filmed it a few times for NWD. Cam compares it to the small gap on the Mega Ramp and the big one to the Canyon Gap at Rampage in 2008

The crowd is a great motivator, both at competitions and during the Nitro Circus Live Tour

Beach Cruisers have 26 inch wheels, so flipping them should be almost like flipping a mountain bike. Right?

Life on tour gets a little hectic sometimes and it takes its toll, not so much that it doesn't get in the way of having fun though

Sometimes crazy stuff happens on the road, well with Cam crazy stuff happens every day. Like eating Kangaroo feed

The sidehack is basically a BMX bike with a sidecar that someone stands on. Cam and Jim have been flipping one in the show, and occasionally they have even landed it. Check the video below

Cam's getting married this weekend so he won't be in the show, Jim's going to have to find someone else to flip the sidehack with, any volunteers?

 Way to go off the deep end. I didn't say anything about progressing the sport, safe features, etc. But when does all that happen on MTV? Between teen prego show #1 or prego show #2?
