Let Travis Pastrana Tell You What It’s Like to Jump a Car

Travis Pastrana has spent a preposterous amount of time in midair: as a kid, jumping a BMX bike into a sand pile; as a teen Moto X Freestyle ­phenom, nailing high-flying Superman seat grabs; as an adult, sending a Subaru rally car 269 feet across Long Beach Harbor. He’s tossed himself out of a Cessna without a parachute. He landed a groundbreaking double backflip at the X Games in 2006 and stuck a barge-to-barge backflip on ­London’s River Thames with such ease that you’d swear it was a matter of evolutionary adaptation instead of mere skill.
