Report from dailymail

Evel Knievel’s son , Robbie Knievel has eclipsed his father by jumping a distance of 200ft over 24 trucks.

His father managed 115ft over 14 buses at the same venue, a theme park in Kings Island, Ohio, in 1975 in a stunt watched by more than half of the American TV audience.

Robbie’s feat was greeted by wild cheers from the crowd, booming explosions and shooting flames.

The 46-year-old gave the thumbs-up after his bumpy touchdown and performed a wheelie.

Evel Knievel died last year at the age of 69 after suffering from failing health.
