Evel Knievel is dead

Now’s that’s a name from the past – I don’t think I had heard of him for 25+ years. But Robert Craig ‘Evel’ Knievel has died aged 69.

Knieval’s stunts comprise four of the top 20 most-watched ABC’s Wide World of Sports events of all time. His first major attempt to jump the fountains at Caesars Palace put him in a coma for 29 days.
