Robbie Knievel – the son of legendary stuntman Evel Knievel – sadly passed away at sixty years old.
After a prolonged fight with pancreatic cancer, Knievel ultimately passed in hospice care, as reported by TMZ.
From a young age, the renowned stunt master Robbie Knievel – better known as “Kaptain Robbie Knievel” to his fans – has been following in the footsteps of his father’s legacy. He was even performing at Madison Square Garden from just 8 years old!
From the age of four, he began launching himself on his bike and jump it multiple times, eventually reaching a staggering 350 jumps in his stuntman career.
In 1989, Knievel made history by conquering the Caesars Palace fountains- a feat his father had previously failed to achieve. He established 20 records for jumps in total throughout his career.
The daredevil’s risky endeavors included catapulting himself over 30 limousines, leaping from the Grand Canyon and even soaring above the USS Intrepid.
In the autumn of 2011, Knievel concluded his career in an impressive fashion – soaring 50 feet over a string of tractor-trailer trucks at Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, CA. The eventful performance came shortly after the passing away of Knievel’s father that same year.
In 2005, fans were taken on an unforgettable journey as they were given exclusive access to Evel Knievel’s stunts and the rigorous preparation that went into them in “Knievel’s Wild Ride.”
Knievel left behind two beloved daughters, Krysten and Karmen, and his cherished grandchildren, Analise and Kane.
