“Nitro” Girl as a wee tot, and on her bike last November.
As the only chick on “Nitro Circus Live,” Jolene Van Vugt has repeatedly shown she’s got what it takes to hang with the boys. However, we recently learned that her perseverance and rigorous training schedule isn’t the only secret to her success. The motocross superstar posted a Throwback Thursday shot this morning that proves that adrenaline has been coursing through her veins for decades.
In the photo above, a tot-sized Jo can be seen bounding off a leather chair amid some spooky Halloween jack-o’-lanterns, without a glimmer of fear in her eyes. “Apparently I’ve liked launching myself off things since I was little. #80s #littledaredevil,” she captioned. With hands up in the air, the tiny blonde kiddo looks just precious rockin’ what has got to be a pair of OshKosh B’Gosh overalls (it was the ’80s, after all), and she still takes the same carefree pose during her stunts today. There’s no doubt about it: “Nitro” Girl was born to be wild!
