Anyone else watch this yesterday? I thought the guy was nuts for attempting to do three of Evel's Vegas stunts all in the same day.

The event was way too long and you had to endure many replays of Evel's crashes and pointless interviews from celebrities but it was a really fun event to watch. Brought back some great memories of the great Evel Knievel. My hat's off to Travis Pastrano and the team that built that stunt bike.

Jump #1 (52 cars)

Jump #3 (Ceasar's Fountain)

He's done stuff way harder in the X-games. The double back flip on a dirt bike is an example.
