Robert Craig „Evel” Knievel (; October 17, 1938 – November 30, 2007) was an American stunt performer and entertainer. Over his career, he attempted more than 75 ramp-to-ramp motorcycle jumps, and, in 1974, a canyon jump across Snake River Canyon (which failed) in the Skycycle X-2, a steam-powered rocket. During his career he suffered more than 433 bone fractures, earning an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the survivor of „most bones broken in a lifetime”. Knievel was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999. Knievel died of pulmonary disease in Clearwater, Florida, aged 69.
