I remember as a kid being glued to the television set to watch Evel Knievel attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon. Evel Knievel was one of the many iconic and larger than life size hero’s us seventies kids had the privilege to see. All us neighborhood kids used to jump homemade ramps and tried to be like Evel. Some of us ended up with busted knees but all the same, it was all good.
Evel inspired countless kids of that time to become daredevils themselves. Whether just neighborhood daredevils like us or for some, professional daredevils. Eddie Braun being one. He set out to complete the jump that his childhood hero attempted. Here is his results.
