Nobody knows the mantra, “It’s not how many times you fall that matters, it’s how many times you get back up,” better than the sole “Nitro Circus Live” female, Jolene Van Vugt. Ever since she took a particularly nasty spill during a failed ramp-to-ramp backflip, Jolene’s been determined to nail the trick flawlessly, and in this sneak peek of the season premiere, her conviction reminds us why it’s not just her electric pink helmet that makes her stand out among her fellow stuntmen.
“One of my favorite parts of the show is watching Jolene backflip,” says Travis Pastrana’s wife, LynZ. Though it’s been over a year since our the bad-ass chick attempted the stunt that left her seriously injured, she’s now back with a vengeance. “Jolene is the most determined woman on the planet,” pro Dusty Wygle says. “If she doesn’t pull it off, she’s super bummed because she knows that she can do it.” We believe in you, Nitro Girl!
Tune in to see if Jolene has what it takes to land the backflip when Season 2 of “Nitro Circus Live” premieres Tuesday night at 11/10c on MTV2!
