Travis Pastrana'S X-GAMES CRASH

I PRACTICED THAT TRICK

FOR 5 YEARS!

Travis Pastrana's devastating bone-breaking crash at the X Games last night was a COMPLETE shock to us -- because just hours before the wreck, Travis told TMZ he had been practicing the trick for 5 years!

Travis busted out the move -- which he dubbed the "TP Roll" -- during the "Best Trick" competition at X Games 17 in L.A. .. when he lost control on the landing and broke his right foot and ankle in the crash.

Even worse -- Travis was supposed to make his debut as a NASCAR driver this weekend -- but now those plans have been put on hold.

Sucks.

You would say something stupid "FRE****." Prove yourself. I'd rather be a "doofus" than making 7.50 looking at the computer on lunch break and Wendys. no pun intended.

It would have been a great trick if he had the balls to stick it. Now it's just an epic failure that anyone with little training could do. Way to blow your racing career, genius.

You can still drive with a Broken Foot, have them customize some air brakes for you on the shifter or something.

I love this guy and he's far from being an attention whore. He's good at what he does! He has great talent and can do just about anyting he puts his mind too. Best of luck to him! Can't wait to see him ride again...even for NASCAR! Go Travis!!!
