Word is they just launched a couch off the big kicker… But the couch didn’t make it off the jump.

If you’ve never heard of MTV’s new-ish show, Nitro Circus, it’s a little like Jack-Ass, but the extreme sports version. Cast, er, crew-members include hot shot X-Games gold medalist Travis Pastrana and Jolene Van Vugt, a motocross racer who can beat you.

The gang will do anything and everything from barrel racing with moto-cross bikes to you got it, launching crap off the jumps at the Utah Olympic Park in Park City. We’re heading out there now, to see what’s next.

(And yes, training will resume as normal when it’s all cleaned up. Our U.S. Freestyle Ski Team athletes are in top form and remain unaffected. The couch, though. That remains to be seen.)
