Knievel's Daredevil Son To Jump Snake River Canyon

Stunt legend Evel Knievel's son Robbie is to attempt a daredevil jump which his late father failed to complete in 1974.
Knievel has announced he plans to visit Twin Falls, Idaho to discuss a plan to jump Snake River Canyon during the Independence Day weekend next year (Jul11) with local officials.
Evel Knievel, who died in 2007, failed to clear the chasm in a rocket-powered Skycycle - an event rapper Kanye West recalled in his Touch The Sky video.
Ironically, the late stuntman sued the rapper over the use of Knievel's trademarked image in the music video, in which West played Evel Kanyevel, and tried to jump over a canyon on a rocket-powered motorcycle.
The two settled out of court just before Knievel's death. (KL/WN/MT)
