Prior to making the final jump, Pastrana told The History Channel, which televised the three-hour event live, "This has been absolutely wonderful".
Daredevil Travis Pastrana has successfully replicated three of Evel Knievel's motorcycle jumps.
Pastrana's third jump was a recreation of Knievel's attempt to clear the fountain at Caesars Palace.
Knievel's failed jump over the fountains in 1967 was the most disastrous of his career, with his missed landing leaving him with several broken bones and a concussion that kept him in the hospital for nearly a month. Where, I'm jumping basically a street bike. "To be able to get a police escort, doing wheelies and burnouts on the Strip in Las Vegas, come on!" He also named the day's event after Knievel, calling it Evel Live. "This was definitely the coolest thing I've ever done". The end result of Knievel's most famous crash was a broken hip, ankle, wrist and both hands, which will happen when you hit the ground at 90 miles per hour. And to replicate the kind of bikes his predecessor jumped, Pastrana will do it on an Indian Scout FTR750 - not one of the much lighter motorcross dirt bikes typically ridden in the X Games events.
Then, Pastrana jumped 16 Greyhound buses (a record 193 feet), breaking the 14 buses that Knievel jumped during his career in 1975 (although Knievel crashed while jumping 13 buses at London's Wembley Stadium five months earlier in 1975). Pastrana recreated three of Evel Knievel's iconic motorcycle jumps on Sunday, including the leap over the fountains of Caesars Palace that left Knievel with multiple fractures and a severe concussion.
