'Nitro' Girl Jolene Van Vugt Will Compete At The 2013 X Games In Brazil!


This Nitro Girl is getting down and dirty to prepare for the X Games.

If your sport of choice involves frequent trips to the ER, you'd better wear a helmet -- even if it's got a pony tail underneath. Bad-ass "Nitro Circus Live" chick Jolene Van Vugt has proven she can certainly hang with the boys -- earning her the title of Nitro Girl -- and now she's taking her competitive edge to Brazil for the X Games!

Unfortunately, for fans hoping to see Jolene perform with the current touring company of "Nitro Circus Live," the motocross superstar has put traveling on hold as of late. "Sorry Trav & I are not touring with the crew right now," Jolene tweeted to her followers. But you can hardly blame her -- she's got to be in tip-top shape for her first X Games, at which she'll compete against nine other female pros from April 18 to April 21. If you can't wait until then to see her awesome stunts, you can get your Jolene fix on the second season premiere of "Nitro Circus Live," Tuesday night, April 9 at 11/10c on MTV2!
