Evel Knievel was one of the world's greatest motorcycle stunt performers. Celebrated for a series of highly publicized ramp-to-ramp motorbike jumps, his risky lifestyle and flirtation with danger endeared him to a public eager for thrills, spills, and over-the-top showmanship.  

Regarded by many as the father of extreme sports, the seemingly indestructible daredevil managed to walk away from numerous and spectacular crashes. Eventually, however, his health declined and Knievel passed away in November, 2007 aged 69.
