Its a stunt that almost killed the legend Evil Kenevil. Travis Pastrana landed it(pun intended) last night! He succeeded in triplicating three of Evel Knievel’s iconic motorcycle jumps. Donning his own Knievel-like costume, Pastrana used an Indian Scout FTR750 to jump 143 feet to clear 52 crushed cars, 192 feet over 16 Greyhound buses and concluded the “Evel Live” event on the History Channel by jumping 149 feet to clear the fountains at Caesars Palace.
“It’s just such an honor to live a day in Evel’s footsteps, and literally his boots,” Pastrana said. “To be here in Las Vegas, so much of my history has been here. I proposed to my wife here, I had (the) first Nitro Circus show here. This was definitely the coolest thing I’ve ever done.”
It was a three hour live event on History Channel, but you can watch a five minute highlight video below.
