Five national amateur titles preceded Travis' first World Freestyle championship in 1998, aged just 14. Youngest man at the '99 X-Games, he took the freestyle gold medal, won his first pro 125cc race and won two gold medals at the Gravity Games.

In 2000, Travis went all-out for professional kudos, winning the 125c national championship, and finishing third overall in national Supercross. He held his X-Games gold medal for freestyle and made the national MotoX team.
