On Friday, January 13, sad news arrives from Nevada about Robbie Knievel, the famous stuntman and son of Evel Knievel.
Robbie was known for carrying on the Knievel legacy, including completing the jump his father never completed. The Caesars Palace jump was a famous stunt now completed by many riders. But was first completed by son Robbie Knievel in 1989 as a tribute to his father.
Brother, Kelly Knievel said in a statement that his brother was “a big daredevil”.
Robbie will always be remembered for the stunts he accomplished and for his famous stunt show in Las Vegas. Robbie was treated in a hospice for pancreatic cancer, where he died.
