Robbie Knievel jumps 24 trucks...


The late Evel Knievel's son, Robbie "Kaptain" Knievel clears 24 trucks in Ohio. Traffic jams will not bother this man...

In a new record-setting jump, Robbie Knievel cleared 24 delivery trucks on Saturdayat the Kings Island amusement park in Mason, Ohio. He hit a speed of about 150km/h before taking off on the 200-foot jump.

Robbie's famous dad, Evel Knievel passed away last year at the age of 69. Back in 1975, Evel had jumped his bike 115 feet, over 14 buses, at Kings Island. Robbie, now 46 years old, continues his father's legacy. In fact, he is said to be considering attempt at jumping the Snake River Canyon, which his father also tried (and failed...) in 1974.
