Evel Knievel 1938 – 2007

Legendary stuntman Evel Knievel died today at the age of 69. Knievel gained fame (and occasionally broken bones) from record-breaking motorcycle jumps and an attempt to jump Snake River Canyon in a rocket-powered cycle.

ABC’s Wide World of Sports brought Knievel’s stunts to a wide audience during a three-year period, featuring motorcycle jumps over obstacles ranging from 13 Greyhound buses to 50 stacked cars.

SportsIllustrated.com features an AP story on Knievel’s life and his fame in later life.

ESPN.com features a story on Knievel’s appearances on ABC’s Wide World of Sports and statistics on the stunts he preformed.

YouTube.com features video of an Evel Knievel jump in 1973 at Portland Memorial Colosseum.

Besides his stunts, Knievel was famous with kids during the 1970s thanks to a collection of toy motorcycles and action figures. Back to Basics Toys still features Evel Knievel Super Stunt Set for sale.
