A bit of must see tv coming up on Sunday July 8th. Travis Pastrana will be in Las Vegas attempting some of Evel Knievel’s most dangerous stunts on a modern day recreation inspired by the motorcycle the legendary stuntman used.
The stunts include: breaking Knievel’s record jump over 50 cars, another record-breaking jump over 14 full size buses, and aiming to make history as the first person to successfully jump the Caesar’s Palace fountain on a bike similar to the one Knievel used 50 years ago – an attempt that ended with a crash that left him grasping for life. If Pastrana rides away from all three, he will be the only person to successfully beat two of Knievel’s distance records and land a jump over the fountain on a v-twin motorcycle.
Fingers cross for Trav….Evel didn’t fair so well on that Caesar’s jump:
