When describing the way to my house to people when I was younger, I would give landmarks just like anybody else. I’d say, “after the sharp curve,” or “just before the big tree.” For the Godfrey household, just keep your eyes peeled for the mini Mega Ramp—you can’t miss it. Gregg Godfrey is the co-creator and producer of MTV’s Nitro Circus. Gregg and the Nitro crew are best known for insane stunts, tricks and contraptions that they dream up and make a reality within their TV shows. Dating back to the early days of Travis Pastrana and Gregg doing stunts on dirt bikes and mountain bikes, the show has evolved to a proportion where nothing is out of the question.
Over the years of reality TV shows, DVDs and a Fuel TV mini series, the show has grown to a live-performance event, which is making its North American debut this January. On tour with Nitro Circus Live is a star-studded cast and some new, blood-related additions. They call themselves the Godfrey Clan: They are the sons and nephews of Gregg Godfrey and they are quite the talented bunch. Made up of Ethen Roberts, Josh Roberts, Tyler Roberts, Chanler Godfrey, Gavin Godfrey, Preston Godfrey and Colton Brockbank, they are the guys following in the footsteps of Gregg and the people they grew up around. As genetics would have it, these guys are equally willing to throw themselves in any different way to push their sport—or whatever you call it—to all new levels.
