It is being said that the chip doesn’t fly too far from the trunk and if Evil Knievel would have been alive he would have shared its great impressions with us about its son’s jump over twenty-one Hummer vehicles.
But it is better to individualize this daredevil and help him stand back from its father’s shadow and make a point for itself as a stuntman. Robbie Knievel has been doing jumps ever since it was nine years old so the public’s applause and amaze always attracted him.
Last Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth the jump brought him face to face with twenty-five Hummers, but the number was reduced by four because of the powerful headwind that threatened with a risky landing on top of a giant SUV roof.
Even so, the landing was a little deflected, but the experienced daredevil didn’t gave the public the occasion to go “Auuu!”
Not only following its father’s footpegs, but trying to push even further the strains of history, Robbie Knievel beat recently a world record in Cincinnati, Ohio. That record was established by his father. Now that’s a son you must be proud of!
Playing GTA4 has always been fun and challenging and how many times didn’t you wish to share the action with friends or even people around the world? It seems that the guy playing here isn’t quite THE master of GTA4, but luck comes out of nowhere and after a few funny crashes it manages to pull out a full 360 degree turn. Distance and Height = Unknown. Fun level = Maximum.
Eleven years ago in the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida, Cory Scott had done its fifth and last unbelievable jump. Having succeeded to do the stunt perfectly four times before let organizers take no extra precaution methods, but simply base on the stuntman’s skill and ability to grab the nets and hold on. Things didn’t go exactly that way and participants where traumatized by the awful experience they had gone through.
Recently, a news story was released in which spectators talk about the thing that shocked them most in its entire lives.
For the 12th edition of King of the South organizers thought that if there is to offer a full one hour TV show, they’ll better do it in the best way possible so the solution came by having two riders do tricks on each bike. Of course, this increased the danger risk by 2, but also the public’s euphoria.
In the near future, it is very possible that we’ll be witnessing more and more similar stunts being invented so now you know where they were officially seen first.
King of stunts, Travis Pastrana, makes team with the guys at Jackass in order to perform the first backflip with two persons sitting on the bike. Travis does all the work and “Midget”, Mike Cook, just holds tight on to the handlebars and prays to God everything will go on well. His prays were listened and here you have a small preview of Mat Hoffman’s Tribute to Evel Knievel. The full thing can be seen on DVD starting May 27th.
When talking about father and son activities, stunts on mini motorcycles aren’t excluded. As you can see in the video attached below, kids are into this stunt thing ever since they abandoned the baby’s dummy and they do it pretty well. So next time when you hear your son got bored of the now old tricycle, you will remember this video and take measures.
Now that the summer season starts requesting its rights and events are being planed all over the world, two wheels professionals begin doing a bit of their routine in order to get back in shape for the tight schedule of the year’s period. As a preview, I’m attaching this video of a small stunt show of stuntman Emanuele Freddo who is not bad at this at all! Don’t try this in the parking lot! Even better, don’t try it at all!
Having set its mind on beating its previous jumping world record (324 feet), Robbie Maddison was offered the great opportunity of achieving an even better performance on his CR500. In the night of world records the longest motorcycle jump ever made by human measured an incredible 351 feet, 29 feet more than the previous.
The man of the night declared: "I can’t explain how amazing it is to smash my own world record in front of a home crowd. I have been doing huge jumps and breaking personal records in training this week so I knew that I had it tonight, but nothing could of prepared me for how great this feels."
