While she was out in California celebrating 40 years of Women’s Motocross, we were able to catch up with Nitro Girl Jolene Van Vugt to see what she’s up to, and also play a little game we call Take Five, which consists of five questions that each elicit five answers.
“Right now I’m training in Maryland and filming for a new video that is called Action Figures,” Jolene said. “Travis [Pastrana], the crew, and I wanted to bring it back to the old days when we used to film Nitro Circus, so we’re coming out with this new movie and are hoping it’ll make it to Netflix. It’s all about doing what we love. There will be lots of different things that go on between base jumping, world records, dirt bikes, and BMX. We’re really excited for it! We’ll be filming over the next month and a half and then hopefully have it out around Thanksgiving for everyone to see.”
