Meet Evel Knievel and Cam Sinclair.
What do they have in common?
Both like to do what most of us wouldn’t dare to do or even think about it – do a death defying act with a high powered motorcycle… The combination of man and machine always mesmerize the crowd!!
The late Evel Knievel will ever remain as an American icon and a legendary motorcycle daredevil..
Robert Craig Knievel (October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007), better known as the Evel Knievel, was an American motorcycle daredevil, an entertainer famous in the United States and elsewhere between the late 1960s and early 1980s. Knievel's nationally televised motorcycle jumps, including his 1974 attempt to jump Snake River Canyon at Twin Falls, Idaho, represent four of the twenty most-watched ABC's Wide World of Sports events to date. His achievements and failures, including his record 433 broken bones, earned him several entries in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Knievel died in Clearwater, Florida on November 30, 2007, aged 69. He had been suffering from diabetes and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis for many years. Rest in Peace Sir… You are truly an American Hero..
