Evel Live

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 18h30
Genre: Special, Motoring

Professional motorsports icon Travis Pastrana honours legendary daredevil Evel Knievel by attempting three of his most dangerous feats in Las Vegas, all while riding a modern day recreation inspired by the motorcycle Knievel used.

These include: breaking Knievel's record jump over 52 cars, another record-breaking jump over 16 full size buses, and aiming to make history as the first person to successfully jump the Caesar's Palace fountain on a bike similar to the one Knievel used 50 years ago – an attempt that ended with a crash that left him grasping for life.

If Pastrana rides away from all three, he will be the only person to successfully beat two of Knievel's distance records and land a jump over the fountain on a v-twin motorcycle.
