If life doesn't have those things that matter, then it's just not worth it.
He's a motorsports competitor and stunt performer, winning championships and X Games gold medals in major events like supercross, motocross, freestyle motocross, and rally racing. Never a challenge too daring, Travis Pastrana also competed in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Roush Fenway Racing and the Global RallyCross Championship for Subaru Rally Team USA, where he strung together a number of Top 10 finishes.
Pastrana's a household name in sports. He's amassed over 10 million followers across his social media platforms. Yet even more impressive than the wins and social influence, Pastrana co-founded NitroCircus, which in 2013 merged with the Raine Group, and is considered a billion dollar sports franchise, according to Forbes.
Talk about the modern athlete, Pastrana is the best in the world, creates premium content, launched an event circuit, hired employees, raised money, and is now taking his sport to all new heights.
In this episode, we’ll talk about "the flow state" of action sports athletes, how they put their lives on the line, and how Travis is a man of "commitment to the task". Pastrana lets us into his world of fitness and nutrition, injury recovery (there has been a lot), and how to start a sports league.
