From 23 – 24 May 2020, Cardiff’s Principality Stadium will host the Nitro World Games, the biggest action sports event to ever come to the UK.

Bringing together 100 athletes from around the globe, competing across FMX, BMX, Skate and Scooter, Nitro World Games promises fans the opportunity to witness some serious tricks on some of the biggest ramps the competition has ever seen.

Ahead of the event, BMX athletes Todd Meyn and James Jones visited RampWorld in the Welsh capital to look towards things to come, and to give a number of tricks a trial run.

Meyn, originally from Perth in Australia, has cemented his place as one of the leading BMX riders in the world. Todd has been part of the Nitro family for some time, making the finals of the inaugural Nitro World Games. He also landed the first ever double front flip tail whip.

Cardiff’s own James Jones will follow the Nitro World Games with an appearance in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, for the BMX freestyle park event’s debut competition.

Nitro World Games organisers recently confirmed that Olympic snowboarder and television commentator Todd Richards will return as the official host of the live event, with the broadcast being co-hosted by skateboarding legend Tony Hawk and action sports veteran Travis Pastrana.
