Derek Costella and Dusty Wygle perform a stunt on a homemade, two-person mini bike last year at Nitro Circus Live in Las Vegas.

Would-be daredevils in the United Kingdom and Ireland have a chance to take part in a Nitro Circus stunt by entering Red Bull's "Challenge Travis" contest that runs until Aug. 20.

Entrants, who can't be more than 5-feet, 10-inches tall or 12 stones [168 pounds], must declare their bravery -- and sign the necessary waivers and disclaimers -- upon entering. Travis Pastrana and his team will choose six finalists who will get VIP treatment Aug. 25 at the Red Bull Pro Nationals motocross event in Hawkstone Park, England. After a series of games, three winners will earn the chance to take part in the final challenge during one of the "Nitro Circus Live" stops in England. Each of the three winners will perform their stunt at one of the three venues on the England leg of the tour in December.

"I can't tell you guys what it is, but I can guarantee you that someone in the U.K. is going to do something that no one has ever done at a Nitro Circus show," Pastrana says in a promotional video.

Nitro Circus Live's 11-city European tour begins Nov. 18 in Stockholm and concludes with shows Dec. 3 in London, Dec. 4 in Manchester, England, and Dec. 5 in Birmingham, England.
