While FMX riders may laugh in the face of danger, I bet they still find marriage proposals to be frightening. About a month ago, Travis Pastrana popped the question to his skater girlfriend Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins at the Nitro Circus show in Vegas, and he was so nervous that he wound up doing it earlier than planned. The video clip is pretty spectacular; leave it to the moto guys to take a more unconventional approach to proposing. I’m a sucker for romance so here are my top 3 proposals by (or to) FMX riders.

I was looking through pictures of an WFA contest a few years ago, and I came across a shot of Adam’s proposal. It was so cute that I saved it. Random fact about Adam’s wife (whose name is slipping my mind): she is the girl who smells his armpits in the “double pits to chesty” Axe commercial.

I’d say that was the best stunt of the night. Congratulations to those two! For a clip of the full proposal, go here.

I’m a fan of unconventionality, and it was pretty awesome that Pink wrote her proposal on the pit board (plus “I’m serious!”) and then told Carey to go back and race since she wasn’t planning on marrying a “loser”. Recently they welcomed a baby girl, Willow Sage, into their family so congrats to them!
