Jon Huntsman picked up an unexpected endorsement today from none other than the motocross wonderboy himself, Travis Pastrana.
“Not one 4 politics, but John Huntsman, fellow MX rider, good friend of nitro & the smartest man I know, is running 4 President. Look him up,” Pastrana posted to his Twitter account this afternoon. Yes, he spelled the former governor’s name wrong, but can you blame him?
Huntsman’s feelings about Pastrana are mutual. When asked last month if he was the rider featured in his campaign videos, Huntsman told reporters, “Sadly no, it was my bike, it was my gear. We couldn’t work out the logistics of it…What I tried to get was Travis Pastrana, who’s a good friend of mine, he’s the only human being who can do a double back flip on a bike. We were going to try to get him to recreate it like he did at the x games in Mexico City.”
