  1. Like many of the members of the Nitro Circus crew, Jim T-Rex Dechamp's destiny has been largely the result of having Travis Pastrana as an acquaintance. Being fortunate enough to have moved a few blocks from Travis as a kid, they soon became good friends. For many years Jim lived in the massive shadow of TP, but has since then made a name for himself due to his equally insane stunts. Earlier in his career Jim excelled in most action sports that involved a bike, from BMX racing to downhill slalom mountain biking. But as many can attest to, if you hang around the Nitro crew too long your portfolio of tricks is bound to become more diversified.

    Jim's most radical and astonishing achievement was when he was the first ever to front flip a full sized dirt bike. Other impressive acts include the double back flip of a BMX bike, and the repairing of appliances while listening to bad pop music. It isn't easy to fix a blender while listening to Britney Spears, many have tried, few have fingers. Jim is also a professional at receiving heavy doses of pepper spray to the face, but as he knows too well you should lay down before pouring water on your face or you will not only feel the excruciating burn on your entire face, but also in your nether regions and everywhere in between. Can I get a ball washer.

    Here's to you Rainbow Jim, despite being friends with one of the most recognized figures in actions sports you have managed to be an innovator yourself. Nitro Circus and fans everywhere love you, but we hear that the Utah Jazz Bear might love you even more.....kinda creepy. You de Champ Jim.
