Video: Watch Travis Pastrana Try His Hand at Standup Ski Racing

Many of us would like to use motocross as the measuring stick to compare professional jet ski racing. Although the “big show” has seemed to have drifted away from our sport, there’s still many of us who still ardently believe that the best days are still ahead of us. That being said, we’ll happily take any opportunity we have to blur the lines between the two sports.

At the beginning of last October, world championship and X Games gold medalist Travis Pastrana took a break from racing his Red Bull Dodge Dart rally car from the Global Rally Cross series (GRC) to indulge in some good ol’ fashioned hooning. In an episode of “On Pace with Pastrana,” Travis and crew departed to Florida for “Two Stroke Week” – a week-long competition between he and pals of golfing, jet skiing and shifter kart racing.

While it’s supremely unlikely for Travis to take another bout at jet skiing but in a professional sphere, at 31-years-old, Travis would actually come in on the young side of our current average age of professional racers. But until “Nitro Circus” takes to covering PWC, don’t expect Travis to trade freestyle, supercross, or NASCAR for a life vest any time soon.

If you want to skip ahead, the water fun begins around 4 minutes into the video.
