VIRGINIA BEACH (WAVY) — The Nitro Circus Next Level Tour is coming to the Virginia Beach Sportsplex on Saturday night.

The event features some of the top dirt bike riders in the country as they jump big ramps and soar more than 60 feet in the air.

Bragging rights are the true top prize, but riders will be judged by a panel to determine a winner for the night.

Mike Mason is 9-time X-Games medalist, he’ll be on hand on Saturday and says the event has come a long way in 20 years.
 

“You’re seeing 60 foot in the air double-back flips,” Mason said. “Pretty much doubling how high we’ve been going and you’re going to see all the crazy flip tricks, double-back flips off it, we have a guy on tour doing front flips, it’s going to be quite the show.”
