If you've been living under a rock, Travis Pastrana probably jumped over it at some point. Born in Maryland, he was riding motorcycles by 4 years old and the need for speed never left. Despite excelling in mountain biking and his studies (he graduated from high school three years early), he knew motorsports were "it".
We'll keep this (kind of) brief: 5 Loretta Lynn National Amateur motorcross crowns by 1992. The world freestyle championship at 14 years old. 2001 Motocross Rider of the Year. He's won 17 X Games medals, including 11 gold medals. First to land a double backflip on a motorcycle. Wins Rally America and races in NASCAR. And founder and ring leader of Nitro Circus.
With the best power-to-weight ratio, as much as 24-inches of suspension travel, and up to 195 hp / 135 lb-ft of torque, the Can-Am Maverick X3 gives riders like Travis Pastrana confidence from the start.
In a 1,200 mile trip down the Baja peninsula, Travis Pastrana and friends were riding their Maverick X3s in the search for R&R&R: Rest, Relaxation, and Ripping.
