Robert Craig Knievel, Jr. was born in 1938 and raised by his grandparents in the mining town of Butte, Montana. His early career was a mish-mash of occupations including; pro hockey, the U.S. Army, copper mining and even a stint as a petty criminal … where he dabbled in safe-cracking & hold-ups!
In 1965, he left the life of crime and pulled together a troupe called Evel Knievel’s Motorcycle Devils.
His ‘thing’ was motorcycle jumping … and his New Year’s Eve stunt in 1967 put him ‘on the map’ … the world over.
The Caesar’s Palace fountain jump would mark his longest attempt … at 141 feet.
Unfortunately … mechanical issues with his motorcycle resulted in a terrible crash … where Evel crushed his pelvis and broke his femur, hip, wrist and both ankles – not to mention the 4-week coma!
Evel’s career would include numerous jumps including; Greyhound buses, live sharks and Snake River Canyon.
He retired in 1980 … having suffered nearly 40 broken bones over his career.
