    Robbie Knievel, Evel Knievel's Stuntman Son, Dead at 60

    Robbie Knievel, Evel Knievel's Stuntman Son, Dead at 60


    Robbie Knievel, the stuntman son of legendary daredevil Evel Knievel, has died after a battle with advanced pancreatic cancer.



    Robbie's brother Kelly confirmed the news to ET, noting that the performer died early Friday morning in hospice care, surrounded by his three daughters.

    Robbie was one of four children Evel had with his first wife, Linda. He was born in Butte, Montana, on May 7, 1962 and performed alongside his father for the first time at age 8.

    Over the course of his own stunt career -- where he performed as "Kaptain Robbie Knievel" -- he completed over 340 jumps, setting 20 world records and often attempting to replicate some of his father's most famous stunts.

    Robbie had several jumps televised live, with his first being the Caesars Palace fountains in 1989, a tribute to his father, who failed to clear the fountains in 1967. Robbie landed safely and became the first to successfully jump the fountains, telling the cameras, "That was for you, Dad."

    Almost never heard of him. Next.

    If I was a stunt man I'd want to die doing a stunt and not waiting to die in a hospice.

    Pancreatic cancer got him, hmmm? Got cigarettes?

    Damn, last of the great Knievel legacy. Unless one of his kids is involved with stunt riding?

    I heard that Lisa Marie Presley was strung-out on Covid-Wuhan Boosters.

    I'm not taking any chances...Weekly Boosters for me since 6/1/23.

    Vapid Joe knows the score.
    Thank God that the Feds are paying Pfizer for our doses.

    Lock up those with less than 10 Boosters.

    Growing up a huge Evil Fan Robbie was a much better jumper than his father, But Evil had the flair the money, and endorsements and toys, it was a just a different time when Robbie was Jumping. After he retired RK had a lot of problems. The Caesars Jump i remember watching Live it is a good watch on YouTube. He lost a lot of respect the night of the Mirage jump he was trying to compete with Robbie Madisons insane Arc jump at Paris Hotel. Robbie basically just jumped a couple of ramps on the side of the Mirage Volcanos and were billing like he was jumping the actual volcanos Fox did some fake cartoons showing RK Falling into the Volcanos with explosions and everything Robbie though was still a good daredevil!
