Daredevil motocross rider Travis Pastrana performed his best trick yet last weekend – he pulled a ring out of his pocket.

The star of MTV’s Nitro Circus proposed to longtime girlfriend Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins in Las Vegas during an exhibition motocross event on Saturday night.

As the event kicked off, Pastrana – clad in his motocross outfit – interrupted the in-house announcer to thank everyone for being there. He then referred to Hawkins as “the love of my life” before proposing to her (where else?) on a motorcycle ramp.

Immediately after the proposal, Elvis’s “Can t Help Falling In Love” was played in the arena as Pastrana and Hawkins, a professional skateboarder, kissed.

Pastrana, 27, told the crowd he d initially planned to propose to Hawkins, 21, at the end of the Nitro Circus Live show later that evening, but he was too nervous to wait.

“This is a stunt that s going to last the rest of our lives,” he told the crowd.

The newly engaged couple later celebrated at Las Vegas’s Studio 54, where Pastrana conducted a 100-person champagne toast while presenting Hawkins with a dozen roses.
