Evel Live

Three Records. One Night.

Indian Motorcycle with Nitro Circus
Evel Live 2

Just over 50 years after Evel Knievel’s attempt to jump the fountain at Caesars Palace, Travis Pastrana honored his legacy by recreating three of Evel’s most famous jumps successfully.

On July 7th, 2019 at the San Bernardino Airport in front of millions of TV viewers, Nitro Circus riders Vicki Golden and Axell Hodges will push the boundaries on what is possible with man and machine. Vicki will attempt to set the record for Fire Wall Break Through on the new FTR 1200 and Axell will shoot for Evel Jr's beverage truck jump mark and the record for longest jump ever.

Travis Pastrana

The Recreation of Three Historic Jumps

Stacked Car Jump

Evel is remembered for his numerous distance jumps over rows of crushed cars. To kick off the night, Pastrana soared over the length of 52 stacked, crushed cars.

Bus Jump

In October 1975, Evel jumped a massive 133 feet, clearing 14 buses in Kings Island, OH. On July 8th, Pastrana pushed the limits even further, clearing 16 buses.

Caesars Palace Fountain Jump

Recreating Evel Knievel's ill-fated 1967 jump, Pastrana launched 150 ft. over Caesars Palace's iconic fountain riding an Indian Scout FTR750, then successfully landed and rode out on the other side.

Travis Pastrana "The impossible is not impossible, it just hasn't been done yet." Nitro Circus Co-Founder, 11 Time X Games Gold Medalist

Any fan of action sports will know the name. Travis Pastrana was born in Maryland and by four years old was already riding a one-speed motorcycle. In 1998, the then fourteen year-old captured the world freestyle championship, Travis served notice of his versatility; but he was just getting started. “I won the first pro race I ever entered (125cc) and also won a gold medal in freestyle at X Games even though I was the youngest person there,” Pastrana recalls.

As the ringleader of Nitro Circus, Travis is committed to the progression of action sports as a whole. His “Pastranaland” complex outside of Annapolis, MD serves as testing ground for new ramps and tricks, with athletes coming from around the world to push their own limits.
